At least one atom in the mystery ligand seems to be misplaced.

it's a glycan...

A little late, but it was puzzle 1378b, not 1387b.

The mystery molecule is a glycan, a chain of sugar molecules. In this case, the glycan was attached to an asparagine. The same glycan appeared way back in puzzle 879.

A developer chat comment gives links to more details on glycans.
