This one is not marked as "never before seen" (another reason to suppose
it's Anchisaurus). However, for the Upper Jurassic of Utah it says

>>7. ** Two never-before-seen species, from the Upper Jurassic Period as
well as newly discovered flora and fauna from the "Cretaceous Gap," a 30
million-year period in North American history, will be revealed at a press
announcement in June.<<

This sounds a lot like both are undescribed. The one from the "Cretaceous
Gap" may well be "Notheonychus", but the other one...
