One such "case" I know of (although it is not my area of work) is found
with the fish ectoparasites of the genus Lernae.  These parasites can be
parasitized by sessile peritrichs and the ones I read about is the
Epistylis.  To find out more on this specific topic (Epistylis) you might
try and contact Prof Jo van As at the University of the Orange Free State,
South Africa (VanAsJG at dre.nw.uovs.ac.za).

I read the above in one of his student's Honnours Project in Aquatic
Parasitology
