. . . WASP-32 . . .

The WASP-32 star is relatively depleted of lithium, which is common for massive stars hosting hot Jupiter planets.[4]

The “hot Jupiter” class planet WASP-32 b, later named ‘Viculus’, was discovered around WASP-32 in 2010.[4] It was found to orbit the parent star in prograde direction in 2014.[6]

The follow-up study utilizing transit timing variation analysis, have failed to find any, therefore have excluded existence of other massive planets around WASP-32 as in 2015.[7]
