As ruled by Opinion 2027 the scientific name of the Llama can either be Lama glama (as a species) or Lama guanicoe glama (as a subspecies).

The wild form, the Guanaco (Lama guanicoe or Lama guanicoe guanicoe) can not be a subspecies of Lama glama, as has erroneously been stated in Mammal Species of the World (v3, 2005) link: (in error) and in ITIS link: (in error) (mirror).
