The scientific classification of the mouflon is disputed. Five subspecies of mouflon are distinguished by MSW3: Armenian mouflon (Armenian red sheep), Ovis orientalis gmelini (Blyth, 1851), northwestern Iran, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. It has been introduced in Texas, US.

Notes on Taxonomy and Nomenclature Top of page. There is general agreement in the scientific community that the wild sheep (mouflons) that inhabit western Asia are the ancestors of all breeds of domestic sheep, Ovis aries (Groves and Grubb, 2011), being the same species according to DNA analyses, chromosome number or type of haemoglobin A (Bunch, 1978; Bunch et al., 1978).

The sheep (Ovis aries) genome was produced by the International Sheep Genome Consortium. A single Texel ewe and a single Texel ram were sequenced using Illumina technology. The assembly is based on the Texel ewe data set. The Texel ram data set and Roche 454 reads from the previous assembly v1.0 (ACIV000000000) were used to fill in the gaps. 39,042 SNP markers and Ovine SNP50 genotyping.
The Domestic Sheep (Ovis aries ), also simply called sheep, are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals typically kept as livestock. Like most ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates. Although the name sheep applies to many species in the genus Ovis, in everyday usage it almost always refers to this species. They can be found almost worldwide. They are raised as.
