Camelus bactrianus or Camelus ferus bactrianus?


Camelus bactrianus is domesticated form of Camelus ferus (name accepted by ICZN, BZN Volume 60, Part 1, 31 March 2003 OPINION 2027, Case 3010). Both species names (C. bactrianus and C. ferus) are correct.
Camelus bactrianus = Camelus ferus f. bactrianus
It is not subspecies of Camelus ferus (see comment: Camelus bactrianus in MSW3.

"yeah but every other domesticated animal does not have priority over its wild ancestors in taxonomy even if it was named first for example Capra aegagrus hircus and Felis sylvestris catus." The point is that mammal species 2005 violates the opinion 2027.
