Dr. Gyollai and co-authors analyzed a thin section of ALH-77005 by optical and FTIR-ATR microscopy.

They were able to detect the presence of coccoidal and filamentous structures (probably built by iron-oxidizing microbes); organic material; biogenic minerals, like ferrihydrite, goethite, and hematite.

It's a different meteorite than the more famous ALH-84001, and the report is recent (April 2019). The findings seem to be pretty similar.

It's a wonder that the article doesn't make a comparison to ALH-84001, or even mention it.
