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. http://fishbase.mnhn.fr/Summary/SpeciesSummary.php?id=59920 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)
