Default Part check *fuel filler tube nut

Does anyone know what secures this tube? I bought a plastic nut (based on realoem) and it doesnít fit or is even threaded. Without the nut to hold the tube up, the rubber hose will come undone from the weight of the fuel when filling up. Thankfully I caught it in time. Thanks in advance.
