Reunion Rail

Dryolimnas augusti Mourer-Chauviré, C; Bour, R; Ribes, S; Moutou, F 1999

The Réunion rail, also known as Dubois' wood-rail, is an extinct rail species which was endemic to the Mascarene island of Réunion. The scientific name commemorates French poet Auguste de Villèle (1858-1943) whose interest in the history of Réunion and hospitality made it possible for numerous naturalists to discover and explore the caves of Réunion.
