As ruled by Opinion 2027 the scientific name of the Wild Bactrian Camel can either be Camelus ferus (as a species) or Camelus ferus ferus (as a subspecies). It can not be Camelus bactrianus ferus, as has erroneously been stated in Mammal Species of the World (v3, 2005) link: Camelus bactrianus ferus (in error) and in ITIS link: Camelus bactrianus ferus (in error) (mirror).
