missing dust cap on new crank

I just got around to building up my bike with my ultegra cranks I got from pbk that I ordered Jan 15th. I'm fairly sure it didn't come with a dust cap, though it is possible I lost it. I asked a LBS and they didn't have any extra. Should I email pbk or can you buy weird bits somewhere?

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

What model Ultegra crank? 8-speed square taper Ultegra cranks came with 8mm hex fixing bolts that provide their own dust cap and 9-speed Octalink cranks came with a ring-type dustcap that is part of the auto-extractor set-up.

If yours is pre 8-speed and uses regular 14mm fixing bolts, dust caps should be available by the drawer-full at any bike shop.

It's new 10 sp compact ultegra. Just ordered it January.

edit: Ok, nevermind. I just found it and so I did get one. It was in my pocket and has been in my chair in the folds ever since it fell out...
