The band-bellied crake (Zapornia paykullii) is a species of bird in the family Rallidae. It breeds in Manchuria, eastern China and northern Korea ; it winters throughout Southeast Asia.

It is getting rare due to habitat loss.

In 1813 the Swedish taxon author Sven Ingemar Ljungh named the bird after the naturalist Gustaf von Paykull.[2]
