Most Azorean native forest adapted endemic moths (Insecta, Lepidoptera) have some level of extinction risk due to the bad condition and protection of the Azorean native habitats.

Extending current protected areas, restoring original habitats of threatened species and the control of invasive taxa should remain a priority for species survival.
