He might be identical with Carl Friedrich Reiche (born: 1860, Dresden, Germany; died: 1929, Chile, S. America), Ph. Dr Leipsic 1885, of whom S. American plants are in Herb. Berl. [B] (a. 1895-1903, 1912), but it seems more probable that he was an official in the service of the German New Guinea Company.

Some New Guinea plants collected by him, were at the disposal of Schumann, when he was preparing ‘Die Flora von Kaiser Wilhelmsland’ (Berlin 1889); material probably in Herb. Berlin [B].
