USSTRATCOM has catalogued ten (10) pieces of debris of Hitomi (16012A / 41337). They span 16012G / 41438 through 16012R
/ 41447.

The orbit of object 16012L / 41442 is the same as that attributed to Hitomi in the 17 TLEs with ID 16012A / 41337 from
epoch 16086.39579725 through 16091.92327283. 

The epoch 16092.19314741 TLE of Hitomi reveals a smaller change of orbit than indicated by the cross-tagged 16012L
object.
