The Sharpe's Rail (Gallirallus sharpei) is a species of bird in the Rallidae family. It is known only from the type specimen of unknown origin, but it has been speculated that it originated from Indonesia. Due to the lack of recent records, it has been considered extinct, but new evidence suggests it is possibly better regarded as a morph of the Buff-banded Rail.
