As ruled by Opinion 2027 the scientific name of the (domesticated) Camel can either be Camelus bactrianus (as a species) or Camelus ferus bactrianus (as a subspecies).

The Wild Camel (Camelus ferus or Camelus ferus ferus) can not be a subspecies of Camelus bactrianus, as has erroneously been stated in Mammal Species of the World (v3, 2005) link: (in error) and in ITIS link: (in error).
