Abstract: As a result of a survey of Itokawid meteors (i.e., meteors
originated from Near Earth Asteroid (25143) Itokawa = 1998SF36), from among
the multi-station optical meteor orbit data of ~15000 orbits, and applying
the D-criteria, we could find five Itokawid meteor candidates.
We also analyzed corresponding mineral materials of the Itokawid candidates
through their trajectory and atmospheric data. We conclude, on the basis of
our investigation, that the fireball, MORP172, is the strongest Itokawid
