What is this part that came out of my phone?

Last time I opened my phone this little part detached from somewhere (I think the top part of the metal band case?), And I'm not sure what it does...

Can you help me identify it and what it does..

Here are 2 pictures I took of it. It is very small the metal is shaped in a little swirl.

I see it here! http://guide-images.ifixit.net/igi/CbG2V... it looks like it is "plugged in" is it? Or did I break something off that was soldered?

It looks like a ground strap. However, since there are several ground points on the logic board, it shouldn't affect function. The only way to find out is to put it back together and power it up!
