BP Piscium was initially thought to be a young star, but astronomers later concluded that it actually fitted a small group of old stars, the FK Com-type stars. BP Piscium also is thought to have eaten a large planet or a small companion star. In this article it is argued that the FK Com-type stars are in fact white dwarfs that have not yet thrown off their outer gas layers as planetary nebula's.
