As ruled by Opinion 2027 the scientific name of the (domesticated) Sheep can either be Ovis aries (as a species) or Ovis orientalis aries (as a subspecies).

The Wild Sheep / Mouflon (Ovis orientalis or Ovis orientalis orientalis) can not be a subspecies of Ovis aries, as has erroneously been stated in Mammal Species of the World (v3, 2005) link: (in error) and in ITIS link: (in error) (mirror).
