Abstract– The article by Fairén et al. (2011) is very interesting to me, as not only have I published, albeit very cursorily, on the occurrence of meteorites on Mars (McCall 2005, 2011, 2012; McCall et al. 2006), but I was the author (McCall 1965) of the description of the Mount Padbury mesosiderite cited by Schröder et al. (2010) in their description of the four stony meteorites also found by the Opportunity rover. I have given my reasons elsewhere for thinking these are not mesosiderites (McCall 2012), but are likely differentiated stony meteorites of a hitherto unknown type.
