The Ectemnorhinus-group of genera is a small, monophyletic taxon within the Brachycerinae, comprising 36 species and restricted to the South Indian Ocean Province (SIP) Islands of the Southern Ocean (Chown 1994; Kuschel & Chown 1995). Of the six genera within the group, two are restricted to just a single archipelago (Christensenia to Îles Crozet and Disker to Îles Kerguelen), a third occurs on two island groups (Canonopsis on Îles Kerguelen, and Heard and McDonald Islands), while the other genera are more widespread, occurring on several archipelagos (Kuschel & Chown 1995).
