Default What Plug Size is this?

Ended up taking the wrong plug out that I wanted my stupid self ended up dropping it in the engine bay. Spent an hour looking for it and gave up. Trying to find what size it is so I can get a replacement and move on.

Yes, it's 1/8"BSPT. 1/8"NPT is close, but you will end up cross-threading it (might seal fine though). 1/8"BSPT is 28 threads-per-inch versus 27 for 1/8"NPT.
