Asteroids in retrograde resonances

Asteroids in retrograde resonance with Jupiter and Saturn

2006 BZ8 is in a 2:-5 resonance with Jupiter, while 2008 SO218 is in a 1:-2 resonance. 2009 QY6 is in a retrograde resonance with Saturn.

Apparently it is possible for objects like 2006 BZ8 to be briefly captured into a 1:-1 resonance... retrograde co-orbital!!!
