New Triassic theropod fossils from Frick in Switzerland: The bones (a leg, toes, with pelvic bones and vertebrae nearby, and a second block with part of the neck and the back of the skull and a tooth) found in 2017 are the second theropod remains unearthed at the Late Triassic site in Frick, which includes hundreds of Plateosaurus bones with about a dozen fairly complete skeletons (plus a turtle).The University of Zurich will study if the remains represent a new species or genus (as seems likely). The theropod was probably around 1.5 meters long. (in German with photos)

The earlier theropod remains found in 2006 came from about 12 meters higher up in the rocks than the new theropod find, which would be older. The 2006 find is currently the subject of a dissertation at the University of Zurich. See:
