Writeup from MB 83:
Kress (c) and Kress (d), name change
Table 2 lists a 5.6 kg L6 chondrite from the Huss (1986) catalog named "Kress (c)." In Meteoritical Bulletin 81, a 57 g H5 chondrite was also listed under this name. Henceforth, the 57 g stone will be called Kress (d), whereas the 5.6 kg stone will retain the name Kress (c).
