Taxonomic Swap 107142 (Committed on 16-03-2022)

Change the scientific name of White-browed Crake from Amaurornis cinerea to Poliolimnas cinereus, based on genetic evidence that it is more closely related to New Guinea Flightless Rail Megacrex inepta than it is to other species of Amaurornis (Garcia-R et al. 2020, Garcia-R and Matzke 2021). Reposition White-browed Crake to immediately follow Nkulengu Rail Himantornis haematopus.
