marlin 1894c receiver screw?

hey gang, I just moved and when unpacking I noticed a missing screw just above the lever. It isn't the takedown screw, and the diagram I found is only of the other side of the receiver and I can't make it out.

I've attached a pic, can you guys hook me up? It's been awhile and I long to send some rounds down range

There's a screw that Marlin calls a Trigger Guard Plate Support Screw (part#301490) that goes right about there.

There's a kind of flesh colored part, laying on the floor, that may have fallen out of your gun, too.

Like the name says, it is for supporting the trigger plate (bottom plate) onto the receiver. If it were not there, the only thing holding the trigger plate on when you operate the lever action would be the tang screw and the little screw at the front of the trigger plate.
