The Austrian ornithologist Dr. Guido Schiebel (1881-1956) collected birds in Austria, in the neighbouring parts of Yugoslavia (Krain) and during his travels to Corsica France, Crete Greece and Sicily Italy. Basing on material collected by him, Schiebel named 15 subspecies of palearctic birds. The type specimens, which were mostly retained in his private collection originally, are housed now in the Naturhistorisches Museum Wien, in the Zoologisches Forschungsinstitut und Museum Alexander Koenig, Bonn and in the Zoologisches Museum Berlin; some of the types could not be located and have obviously been lost with parts of his private collection after the Second World War. Basing on material collected by him 7 new subspecies Tetrastes bonasia schiebeli subsp. n., Turdus merula schiebeli subsp. n., Cettia cetti schiebeli subsp. n., Parus salicarius schiebeli subsp. n., Fringilla coelebs schiebeli subsp. n., Cardelis carduelis schiebeli subsp. n., and Passer italiae schiebeli subsp. n. have been named after Schiebel. The type specimens of them are also listed here.
