Nesoclopeus woodfordi immaculatus
Santa Isabel, Solomon Islands.
Sometimes placed in Rallina or Rallus, or recently, along with closest allies, in Nesoclopeus on account of differences in structural characters. Closely related to †H. poeciloptera, with which may be conspecific; hitherto considered conspecific with H. tertia and H. woodfordi; H. tertia has yellow-horn vs ivory-horn bill (2); dark grey vs greenish-yellow legs (2); white barring on lower flanks and wing edges vs no barring (3); H. woodfordi differs in its black vs ivory-horn bill (3), dark grey vs greenish-yellow legs (ns), pale grey vs black head (3), and many white spots on wing edges and white barring on lower flanks vs none (3). Significant individual variation#R may, however, complicate the situation. Monotypic.
