The Tristan Moorhen (Gallinula nesiotis) is an extinct flightless rail from the South Atlantic island of Tristan da Cunha.

The once abundant Tristan Moorhen had become rare by 1873, and by the end of 19th century it was extinct as a result of hunting, predation by introduced species (rats, cats and pigs) and habitat destruction by fire. A handful of taxidermical specimens of the Tristan Moorhen have been preserved, including one at Harvard University.
