Rallina is a genus of bird in the rail family, Rallidae. It contains four species found in forest and marshland in Asia and Australasia. They are 18–34 cm long and mainly chestnut or brown, often with black and white markings. They are four species that are now placed in the genus Rallicula that were previously included in the genus Rallina. In fact, some taxonomic authorities continue to place them there. A fifth species, the Great Nicobar crake was proposed but not accepted as a separate species.
The genus contains the following four species:
- Red-necked crake (Rallina tricolor)
- Andaman crake (Rallina canningi)
- Red-legged crake (Rallina fasciata)
- Slaty-legged crake (Rallina eurizonoides)
