In the Late Triassic :-)

Okay, it was first formally hypothesized to be a basal sauropodomorph in the 
paper describing Eodromaeus:

Ricardo N. Martinez, Paul C. Sereno, Oscar A. Alcober, Carina E. Colombi, Paul 
R. Renne, Isabel P. Montañez and Brian S. Currie
(2011). "A Basal Dinosaur from the Dawn of the Dinosaur Era in Southwestern 
Pangaea". Science 331 (6014): 206?210.
