I broke a lens and need some help

Hello,
While hiking in Zion National Park I slipped on some rock whacking my camera lens and breaking the plastic ring on the front of my FA 50 1.4. The lens is still working as is my K200, but I need that little plastic ring so I can attach the lens cap and filters. I can see it attaches with three small screws still attached to the main part of the lens. Does anyone know where I can buy the plastic ring?

Thanks everyone, I read you all every week and have really appreciated the advise.

i've seen lenses offered 'parts only' on ebay. You are sort of lucky on the break---- usually it breaks the Helicoid and then the lense is trash.
