They are both Mallard, so even though these domestics are intergrades, they should be reported as Mallard (Domestic Type)

wait so is Indian Runner duck a seperate species?

Out of all the duck species only two have been domesticated: The mallard and the Muscovy. 

The vast majority of domestic ducks are mallards (the rest being muscovies) all of which have their own name based on their breed... like dogs.

Think of it like this.

All Indian Runners are Domestic Mallards


Only Some Domestic Mallards are Indian Runners
