I ask that because apparently, Gallicrex cinerea (Gmelin, 1789) is embedded within Amaurornis (cf. Boast & al., 2019). I don't know the phylogenetic position of Amaurornis (Poliolimnas) cinerea (Vieillot, 1819) but if this species is a true member of Amaurornis, we are faced with a case of homonymy.
This leads to the following question: What is the true year of Amaurornis, 1852 or 1853 knowing that Gallicrex was erected in 1852 by Blyth ?
