Stihl FS45 Trimmer Carb Rebuild

I installed a "carb kit" in an attempt to fix my hard-starting trimmer. When I had the carb all assembled again I noticed this teeny tiny little Torx screw (about 0.2 inches long, see photo) on the work bench. I took several photos during various stages of the disassembly and reassembly and saw no place where the screw belongs. Any ideas?

I don't recognize it, maybe it was an extra screw from the kit. Many kits include parts for several model carburetors.

Well, that's about the only possibility. I started by laying down a white paper towel and put my parts on it. That screw must have fallen out of the kit bag and onto the towel like you suggested, because I reassembled the trimmer and it works fine! I could swear that I removed that screw but I don't have a Torx bit small enough to fit. Memory going bad...
