**These specimens have been confirmed as Martian, but have not yet been approved by the Meteoritical Society
Note: See top of table for Petrologic Color Key
§§The number of terrestrially-unpaired meteorites stated here is a best estimate based on available information and is subject to change.  It is very difficult to properly assess the pairing relationships among the most common Enriched Mafic Shergottites, so the actual number of unpaired specimens may be slightly lower than stated.
Note: If the 51 independently-classified specimens grouped with Northwest Africa 12262 are indeed dispersed subsamples of a single ancient fall exceeding 30 kilograms in total weight, it would collectively represent the largest known Martian meteorite.  The largest single intact Martian meteorites are the ~18 kilogram Zagami fine-intergranular shergottite and the 14.5 kilogram Taoudenni 002 olivine-gabbroic shergottite.
