More on the Triassic plateosaurid from Schleitheim in Switzerland:


Swiss dinosaur is now identified as "definitely" a new taxon (although the skull is still lacking, material is adequate to show its distinctness), related to Plateosaurus, estimated at 12 meters long; will be officially named in a scientific journal, probably in May; paleontologists may do another dig for more material at the site (on private land)  (with audio) (in German)
