Ang mouflon (Ovis aries orientalis[1] group) ay isang subespesyeng pangkat ng ligaw(wild) na tupa. Ang mga populasyon ng Ovis aries ay maaaring hatiin sa mga mouflon(pangkat orientalis) at mga urial o arkar(pangkat vignei).[2] Ang mouflon ay pinaniniwalaang isa sa dalawang mga ninuno ng lahat ng mga modernong breed ng domestikong tupa.[3][4]
