"Paleontologists at the University of Tübingen in southern Germany have discovered a previously unknown dinosaur species in the university's Paleontological Collection. It is not a plateosaurus, as it was originally labelled, but a whole new genus and species: Tuebingosaurus maierfritzorum. It is similar to long-necked herbivorous sauropods and lived 203 to 211 million years ago.

The specimen was unearthed in the Obere Mühle outcropping of the Trossingen Formation on the edge of the Swabian Jura near Tübingen in 1922. The hindquarters of a skeleton were found in the same geological layer as many specimens of a plateosaurus, a long-necked bipedal herbivore that roamed central Europe around 205 million years ago. Because of the other finds and because the taxonomy of this genus can be ambiguous to determine, the partial skeleton was also categorized as a plateosaurus and placed in storage in the Paleontological Collection of the University of Tübingen…"
