The Eponym Dictionary of Birds claims:
Blakiston's Fish Owl ssp. Bubo blakistoni doerriesi Seebohm, 1895
Eurasian Eagle Owl ssp. Bubo bubo doerriesi Buturlin, 1910 NCR [NPRB Bubo bubo ussuriensis]
Grey-capped (Pygmy) Woodpecker ssp. Dendrocopos canicapillus doerriesi Hargitt, 1881
Common Kestrel ssp. Falco tinnunculus doerriesi Swann‚ 1920 NCR [JS Falco tinnunculus tinnunculus]
Fritz Doerries (1851–1953) was a German lepidopterist, collector and explorer in Siberia. He normally collected with his brother.
The Key to Scientific Names
Friedrich Dörries (1852-1953) German collector, explorer in Siberia (subsp. Bubo blakistoni, syn. Bubo bubo ussuriensis, syn. Falco tinnunculus, subsp. Picoides canicapillus).

So several questions Fritz or Friedrich (assume Friedrich)? born 1851 or 1852 (assume 1852)? And if there was a brother can we be sure all are for Friedrich Carl Gustav Dörries. Especially if I read this sentence:

Dörries hatte die Brüder Henry Gustav D. (1861–1904) und Edmund D. (1865–1958), die als Präparatoren arbeiteten und teils gemeinsam mit Friedrich, teils alleine auf Forschungsreisen gingen.

Herr Dörries of the Hamburg Zoological Gardens

Is I assume the father Friedrich Nicolas Daniel Dörries (1822-1917). As Fredrich jnr was never at Hamburg Zoo but at Hagenbeck.

The Zoological Garden of Hamburg (German: Zoologischer Garten zu Hamburg) was a zoo in Hamburg, Germany that operated from 1863 until 1930 and is not Hagenbeck.

There is no other Fritz. On several passenger records Frederich is recorded as Fritz. Wikipedia is correct on dates.
