This symphony may have been included in Anita Zakin's catalog (most Pichl symphonies - and perhaps his other works? - appear with a "Z number") - I do not know and hope someone who does know will add the missing catalogue number in the right places.
Composer's name given on score is Pichel; key is given as D♯ on title page, but is clearly D major from parts. This was not unusual in the Classical and Romantic eras and meant, as I recall, that the wind players should beware sharper keys ahead, or something of the sort, back in the day when some instrumentalists had to prepare more carefully for sharper keys perhaps than they do now because of their instrument designs? Don't know really, there. (Schissel)
