Fedorowski, J. and Kullmann, J. 2013. Vojnovskytesidae - a new family of Mississippian Rugosa (Anthozoa). Acta Geologica Polonica, 63(4), 657-679. Warszawa.

Two new species of the genus Vojnovskytes Fedorowski, 2009, namely V. marcinowskii and V. arcuatus, and a new genus, Vojnimitor, based on the new species V. proiectus, all from Mississippian strata of northern Spain, are described. Vojnovskytes variabilis (Vojnovsky-Krieger, 1934), the type species for the genus from the lowermost Visean strata of southern Urals, also is discussed and illustrated. Characters displayed by the taxa mentioned permit introduction of a new family Vojnovskytesidae.
