This listing is probably in error. It seems to stem from an unreferenced mention in a Wikipedia [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porzana]article[/url]. Alternatively, the osteological remains may have previously been assigned to the genus [i]Porzana[/i] prior to the species' description in the related genus [i]Gallirallus[/i], as [i]G. storrsolsoni[/i] (Kirchman & Steadman, 2006).
