Alternatively placed in Phalacrocorax or Euleucocarbo, but classification here follows results of a comprehensive molecular phylogeny for the entire family#R. In past, often considered to include L. chalconotus and L. onslowi; these three were sometimes treated as conspecific with L. campbelli complex (campbelli, ranfurlyi and colensoi). Monotypic.
Restricted to area of Cook Strait (New Zealand), breeding in Marlborough Sounds region of NE South I: on White Rocks, Sentinel Rock, Duffers Reef, Trio Is, and Rahuinui I (off D’Urville I). Formerly bred on D’Urville Peninsula (EC D’Urville I) and on nearby Tekuru Kuru I.
