A black hole about 20,000 times as massive as the Sun may inhabit a star cluster indicated by the small circle on the outskirts of the galaxy ESO 243-49. The intermediate-mass black hole -- one of the few yet detected -- appears to be taking a bite out of an orbiting star about once every year, when the star comes closest to the black hole.

Another dense core globular cluster black hole.
They should be rather more common than the classical galactic nucleus black holes as a simple result of them forming in exactly the asme way and there being more of them than classical galactic nuclei.
They should also follow the exact same mass of cluster versus mass of core black hole as galactic nuclei with a slight excess in black hole relative maass versus surrounding cluster due to tidal mass stripping by the galaxy the cluster is orbiting.
