Non-barynoic dark matter is only one candidate for dark matter, old fashioned dust, naked singularities, dust shrouded star nurseries, rogue planets, etc are also likely candidates. There's a hell of a lot of mass to account for, much is dark.

My personal theory is at least one eighth of the unaccounted for mass consists of single missing socks from cloths dryers and missing ball point pens.
