A, C and E can be eliminated as it should be older.

Between B & D my ans is B because i think 'current' sounds more correct her than 'currently'

as old as and older than are all valid idioms.

but "current existing" sounds repetitive so i'll go with currently.

My pick is D.

D it is.
Currently refers to existing. (Check that by substituting "existing" with "that exist" -> of the subspecies that currently exist)
