Madagascan wood rail
|Madagascan wood rail|
The Madagascan wood rail (Canirallus kioloides), also known as the kioloides rail, is a species of bird in the family Sarothruridae. It is endemic to forests, often in wet areas, in northern and eastern Madagascar. Until the description of the Tsingy wood rail, it was the only known species of Canirallus in Madagascar.
Evidence from the loci of the species Amaurornis olivieri suggests that the Canirallus kioloides had signs of polymorphism.
