As ruled by Opinion 2027 the scientific name of the wild Yak can either be Bos mutus (as a species) or Bos mutus mutus (as a subspecies). It can not be Bos grunniens mutus, as has erroneously been stated in Mammal Species of the World (v3, 2005) link: (in error) and in ITIS link: (in error) (mirror).
species of mammal, the wild yak (may, or may not, include the domesticated yak, which otherwise is Bos grunniens)
