God saves us!

About your question: In my opinion, new names of taxa published in a 
fake journal are not valid, since they have not a valid ISSN number; the 
mentioned ISSN number in the fake journal would refer to real Wulfenia. 
At least, in ICN, the e-publication requires (valid) ISSN number.

Best wishes

Both websites criminally usurp the identity of the official journal. They fraudulently use false informations, a false editorial board and false publication requirements to encourage authors to submit articles and to transfer page fees to a bank account in Yerevan (Armenia).
> The criminals use Address, ISSN, Impact Factor, etc of the official journal. They changed the URL of the Regional Museum of Carinthia at Thomson Reuters Master Journal List directing users to their homepage. You can identify the homepages cited above as fake by checking names of persons: the criminals have severe problems to distinguish between first names and surnames (eg Editor's name: Prof. Vienna S. Franz).
> Please, don't transfer any money to VTB Bank (Armenia), Yerevan Branch, Taylors Publications LLC (16048185548601 and 16048185548602).
> The Regional Museum of Carinthia is not liable for any offence undergone by potential authors who would have submitted articles via the websites mentioned above. Download of articles from these websites which were published in the official journal Wulfenia is illegal.
