The Phylogeny of Bread Clips

In a peer-reviewed publication of the British Medical Journal, there's a “proposal for phylogenic plastic bag clip classification”. The reasoning behind the need for classification is because so many bread clips are ingested and then are hard for x-rays to pick up. The actual proposal is paywalled, but Laughing Squid has several fascinating graphics from the paper. Link

Not being a guitar player, I never thought there was any use for the darned things. Now I'll never look at another one w/o having an image of say Slash picking one up to use.

Do they, by chance, have a geographic distribution of these types of clips as well. For example, Haplognatha primarily found in parts of Europe and North America, etc?
