1  NAKAMURA 1989 is KEK experiment with 12 GeV protons on Pt target. The limit applies for mass ${ {}\lesssim{} }$ $1.6$ GeV and lifetime ${ {}\gtrsim{} }$ $10^{-7}~$s.
2  BUSSIERE 1980 is CERN-SPS experiment with 200$-$240 GeV protons on ${}^{}\mathrm {Be}$ and ${}^{}\mathrm {Al}$ target. See their figures 6 and 7 for cross-section ratio vs mass.
