Perhaps you should contact Hans Dieter Sues, he is currently involved 
in the study (together with Walter Munk of the State Museum of 
Natural History in Karlsruhe) of a diverse Late Permian (Late Tatarian) 
tetrapod fauna 
found in a marine sediment fissure infilling  in Korbach, Hessen, Northern 
Germany.  Fossils include remains of pareiasaurs, archosauromorphs, 
dicynodonts and a specimen of Procynosuchus sp. (delahayi?).

Eberhard Frey and Walter Munk from Karlsruhe also recently published, together 
with Sues, a paper in Nature about a new specimen of Coelurosauravus 
which gave new insight in the structure of its gliding membranes.
