The opinion of the commission was that "the "name of a wild species...is not invalid by virtue of being predated by the name based on a domestic form." Opinion 2027_sentence_3

These 17 species of wild animals were named later than the relevant domestic animals, hence the use of the ICZN provision for conservation. Opinion 2027_sentence_4

The names of the 17 species were added to the Official Lists and Indexes of Names in Zoology of the ICZN, which means that they are valid taxa. Opinion 2027_sentence_5
