Minor Planet 55636, 2002 TX300, is one of the largest members of the Haumea collision family. It was found to be almost completely covered in ice with a high albedo. It is not certain why it has not accumulated dark material. Stellar occultation (the first successful one for any KBO) found it to be 89 miles across and a potential dwarf planet.
