DISTRIBUTION Pakistan, south of Quetta and west of the Indus River. May possibly extend into southeastern Iran. Boundaries with the Kerman hybrid sheep to the west are unclear.

HABITAT Arid hills.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Although listed as a subspecies by Ellerman & Morrison-Scott, many authorities continued to treat it as a synonym for Afghan urial. After field study in 1987, Valdez considered it sufficiently distinct to be recognized as a subspecies.
