Facilitators / Compilers/s:
This species has only been collected from 3 localities on 2 different islands, its real distribution is uncertain and the threats it faces are unknown. Therefore the species has been assessed as Data Deficient (DD).
This species is currently known to occur on Tenerife and La Palma islands. However, the scarcity of shells and paucity of sampling means that the range is uncertain and that the species might be present on more islands.
There are no population trends available for this species. The species is very rare, but also very small and therefore not so easy to detect.
This species is thought to occur in natural forests and their edges (Fayal-Brezal).
The main threats to this species are the clearing of natural forest and wildfires.
More research is needed on the population, distribution, ecology and threats to this species.
