Help! Need help identifying part that fell out of K50 during disassembly

Can anyone tell me where this part (gold ring in middle of photo between screw and tweezers) from my Pentax K-50 goes? I had removed the front and bottom of the camera body when the part fell out of the camera - back of the camera (with display screen) was not removed.

FYI this is the most appropriate forum for this post, I see that you tried posting it in other sections- cross posted is not necessary or allowed on the forum. Hope someone's able to ID this part for you soon!

wouldn't the K-30 and K-50 model specific forum be the most appropriate forum? I am trying to identify a model-specific part so I don't agree that the current forum is the most appropriate - i am not able to delete from the current forum to re-post in the model specific forum and I would like to do that

I've gone ahead and moved the thread as requested, and there's also a redirect up in the repairs forum for added visibility.

My K-50 carcass (RIP) has a similar bushing sitting in a foam gasket on the right-side strap bracket (viewed from the front). But there are probably other similar bushings in the camera. To access this particular bushing, though, the top of the camera must be removed. Did you drop the camera?
