Please note, that his family has moved back to Denmark several years ago - so
his 80's address is no longer valid. And your are completely right - and
that's is why I didn't post their addresses here on the list.

Yes and no!
All his material was passed on - but to different sources.
Some of his papers and material is still here in Denmark. Some is in the
archives of the Aquarium association that he was a member of, some at the
University of Copenhagen and some I have (papers, unpublished manuscripts,
correspondence etc.). Other parts of his material are scattered around at
different European collections and at killie hobbyists around the world. But
the main part of his own notes and pictures, are deposited at the Paris
Museum. This material are only assessable on loan through a official request
from a University or similar institution.
Last year Jean Huber published a paper in memory of Scheel (a redescription of
Poropanchax scheeli). He asked me to make sure, that Scheel's family got one -
and they turned out to be both very surprised and pleased, especially that
Scheel wasn't long forgotten. So if anybody is making use of his name or
material in his honour - then I'm sure that he's family wants to know.
