A quasigroup identity is said to be of Bol­Moufang type if it involves three
variables, two of which occur once on each side and one of which appears twice;
moreover, the order in which the variables appear is the same on both sides,
and there is only one binary operation in the identity. Answering a question
of Drap’al, we classify all varieties of quasigroups of Bol­Moufang type where
the operation involved is #, /, or \, determining all inclusions among these and
providing all necessary counterexamples. This work extends that of Phillips and
Vojt–echovsk’y, who described the relationships among the 26 varieties obtained
