Born in Victoria, probably at Heidelberg, a suburb of Melbourne, on 14 December 1848, and died at Melbourne on 10 February 1927.
Family information is that both he and his father, Charles Gustave Schlipalius (1823/24-1897), worked for F. Mueller at the Melbourne Botanic Gardens around the period 1875-80. The specimen of Eucalyptus bosistoana simply states the collector was ‘Schlipalius’ but it appears highly probable that Charles Leopold was the collector of the lectotype, since he is understood ‘to have collected specimens of eucalypts for classification’. Additional support comes from the family record that he had a personal knowledge of Gippsland, an area of south-eastern Victoria in which E. bosistoana occurs. His father, Charles Gustave Schlipalius, migrated from Saxony, Germany, in 1845.Source: Extracted from: Hall, N. (1978) Botanists of the eucalypts.
