cyclostomata

Lampreys (sometimes also called, inaccurately, lamprey eels) are any jawless fish of the order Petromyzontiformes, placed in the superclass Cyclostomata. The adult lamprey may be characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth. The common name “lamprey” is probably derived from Latin lampetra, which may mean “stone licker” (lambere “to lick” + petra “stone”), though the etymology is uncertain.

Although they are well known for boring into the flesh of other fish to suck their blood, only 18 species of lampreys are actually parasitic.
