Hi Jose and all,

Yes, very possible that we might have samples from both the Martian moons as well as
Mars. The spectral matches for Phobos seem to match the CV3's type meteorites like
Allende, Mexico and have been suggested in the past. However there are many other
asteroids that have this spectral characteristics (same asteroid? broken up?) and may,
there fore be the parent body, instead of the Martian Moons ( captured asteroids by
Mars). All my best!
