Usually these can be seen as a type of fanservice, but they have their own fandom, and there's even a number of eroge focused on them. Mostly popular in Japan, but has fans all over the world.

Especially noticeable when the males of the same species are truly monstrous abominations while females are cute/sexy girls with some odd traits.

This is similar in idea to moe anthropomorphism but can't always be categorized as moe.
