As ruled by Opinion 2027 the scientific name of the (domesticated) Gayal can either be Bos frontalis (as a species) or Bos gaurus frontalis (as a subspecies).

The (wild) Gaur (Bos gaurus or Bos gaurus gaurus) can not be a subspecies of Bos frontalis, as has erroneously been stated in Mammal Species of the World link: (in error) and in ITIS link: (in error).}
