I think Koi should be referred to as Cyprinus rubrofuscus., according to recent taxonomic insights. It is just the Doitsu variations that are hybrids of C. carpio wiht C. rubrofuscus. Viridiflavus 16:05, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I dont know this study, you have a reference to read it?. Therefore, the koi is a selected variety of C. rubrofuscus with some hybridations (in the doitsu varieties)? --Pristigaster 18:17, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
