Is Dhofar 302 paired with the Dhofar 303 clan or the Dhofar 081 clan?

All of these Dhofar lunar meteorite stones were found within 2 km of each other.

On any of a number of 2-element composition plots such as this one, samples of Dhofar 302 are clearly distinct from those of the Dhofar 303 clan and the Dhofar 081 clan. Three different lunar meteorites occur in the small area of the map above. The colors and textures also differ among the three meteorites.
