The prevalence of dust on the exoplanet HD 189733b from Hubble and Spitzer observations
http://arxiv.org/abs/1210.4163

Dusty atmosphere may explain several features of HD 189733b's atmosphere.

Furthermore the difference between pM and pL planets may arise from presence/absence of dust rather than temperature inversions.
