Auckland Island Rail

Lewinia muelleri (Rothschild, 1893)

The Auckland Rail (Lewinia muelleri) is a small nearly flightless rail endemic to the Auckland Islands 460 km south of New Zealand. It is somewhat of a biogeographical anomaly, being the only species in the genus Lewinia to have reached the islands of New Zealand, skipping over the main islands to reach the remote Auckland group. Its closest relative being the Lewin's Rail of Australia. The species is currently restricted to two islands in the Auckland group, Adams Island and Disappointment Island. Source: Wikipedia
