A weird Mediterranean Anglerfish’s eye-parasite

Having a look on my old photos, I have noticed this small parasite settled on the top of a Mediterranean Anglerfish’s eye (Lophius piscatorius). It should be very annoying having a parasite right there! I Think it is a copepod, a small crustacean that often is found parasitizing fish and other animals.
