Ovis gmelini Corsicana-continentis

Description: Starting in 1935 pure Corsican Mouflon from the Island of Corsica have been introduced to several areas in southern France (Alps, Pyrenees and Massif Central). Those mouflons have mostly Corsican Mouflon genetic endowment and, with their habitat relatable to that of their Island of origin, has helped retain a phenotype very similar to that of pure Corsican mouflons.
