Accreting millisecond pulsar with a low-mass companion

Maybe we should have a thread for these systems where the companion to a pulsar has been reduced to substellar masses? In any case, here's another one:

Strohmayer et al. "NICER Discovers the Ultracompact Orbit of the Accreting Millisecond Pulsar IGR J17062-6143"

The donor mass is likely in the range 1618 Jupiter masses, and is probably either a helium or carbon-oxygen white dwarf. Orbital period is 38 minutes.
