Canis lupus dingo (domestic dog)

Synonyms: Canis dingo

Wikipedia Abstract

The taxon Canis lupus dingo is named for its most famous and original member, the Australian dingo, but it also includes non-Australian animals such as the New Guinea singing dog, the Thai dog, and other animals which are considered taxonomically identical to the Australian dingo, so any differences would be at the level of "variety," "landrace", or "breed". The name indicates that, like the familiar common dog, Canis lupus familiaris, it is one of many subspecies of Canis lupus, the gray wolf.
