Comments and References:

From Mammal Species of the World (Smithsonian Inst. Press):

"Horses have been assigned to two different species, E. caballus (including
ferus and gmelini) and E. przewalskii, but recent authors include przewalskii
in caballus; see Corbet (1978ref:194), Groves (1974 ref), and Bennett (1980ref).
Groves (1971ref) and Corbet (1978ref:194) proposed that ferus replace caballus,
objecting to the use of specific names based on domestic animals. Gromov and
Baranova (1981ref:333-334) continued to recognizetwo species, gmelini and
