    So a piece of the black plastic underskirt came loose on the freeway and before I could find a safe place to stop, it fell off. As it flew into the car behind me it looked a lot bigger than the space it left behind that I can see underneath. Or is something else missing from this picture?

    1. Either way, how important/urgent is it to replace?
    2. What's the part number or description? 20171025_121859.jpg

    I would replace it: It's number 9 here:

    Fender & Components for 2014 Toyota Prius | Toyota Parts

    Currently out of stock there, but you can search for the part number:

    53876-47070

    There's a plethora of fasteners, check: some of them might have stayed with the car, and you can also compare to the other side.

    passenger sitting on your lap = left
    passenger sitting in passenger seat = right

    That's a right side. Sitting in the car, it's to your right.

    Did you catch my typo, that it is in fact part no:

    53875-47030

    I gather you did, with your question. Good catch.
