Unidentified Cable while replacing Display Data Cable

Accidentally snipped off the end of a cable while replacing the Display Data Cable. I can't figure out what the cable is or where it goes. Instead of describing it, look at the images. It's the black cable on the right bottom that is NOT one of the antenna cables. It has a "snipped" off end to it.

boy, do I feel stupid. I just discovered that the "extra" cable IS actually the black antenna cable. I guess it snapped in two. Look in the close up pic where the silver tape is wrapped around both wires.

That looks like the camera cable to me. To be sure please give us the last three figures of your serial number as the machine you selected looks like this: MacBook Core 2 Duo LCD & Inverter A1181 (fast method) Replacement

I was afraid it was the camera. Can that be replaced? It looks like it would be a &%*&@ to do so.

You are correct, I see now where it came off. The cable shadow threw me off.
