I just posted the following in reply on the ICZN list, so am also posting it
here for Taxacomers, although John Grehan has also posted a useful reply
here. Authorship depends on which taxa Doug are looking at, and from John's
reply it seems that in some parts of the work it is necessary to check
authorship for each new name.

This is a rather famous work for Lepidopterists. Bridges (1988) explains
publication details as follows:

b1369 1865-1875 Rhopalocera. In Reise der
Osterreichischen Fregatte "Novara" urn die Erde in den
Jahren 1857, 1858, 1859 unter den Befehlen Commodore B.
von Wullerstorf-Urbair. Zoologischer Theil. Zweiter Band:
Abtheilung. Vienna :vi+548+[I] pp in 5 parts, 140 pls
(1):1-136, pls 1-21 [Jan] 1865: (2):137-378. pls 22-47 [Dec]
1865: (3):379-536, pls 48-74 [Apr 1867]: (4):1-10, pIs 75-107
[1875] [or 1874] [moths]; (5): 1-20. pls 108-140 [1875]
[moths]. The plates were issued plain or colored, and
volumes with colored plates are quite rare. Sets with plain
plates were issued promptly: sets with colored plates took
time. Some species names used in the Reise were first proposed
in the Verhandlung and some in the Wein ent. Monats.
(4) was by R. Felder alone, and (5) was by R. Felder and
Rogenhofer. [FMB, pc]. [CFC, pc]. [Ref: b2755: b1963:
b0871:b0423;b0879;b2015] [1865-1875]

I hope this helps.
