Any idea what this Canon lens cap is for?

A reader sent me this picture of what appears to be a smaller Canon lens cap. Does anyone have an idea what kind of Canon product uses this type? The size looks like 2/3 of a regular Canon lens cap. Could this be for Canon's mirrorless system?

Update: this is a rear cap from a Canon video lens. Sorry, false alarm.

          Researching is all fine and good, but sometimes its fun to figure something out in open discussion.

      I did my research, could not identify it.

        Canon EF mount – 54mm, Canon XL mount – 42 mm… looks about right to me. What you got there is the back cap to a XL1 or XL2 lens just as folks have been saying. Its been at least 10 years since I’ve used one, but it sure looks familiar.

    Must be Canon is branching out… Canon Kool-aid, or maybe Motor oil…
    Screw mirrorless, everybody’s got one… Now camera branded soft drinks… that’s 2013!
