The species is found in many localities on Madeira and the Desertas, and does not seem to face major threats, so it is assessed as Least Concern (LC).
This species is endemic to the Madeiran islands where it is only found on Madeira and has two subspecies, both of which are common on the island. It is mainly found in the coastal and lowland areas, rarely found inland or on the summits (Cameron and Cook 1998, Seddon 2008).
There are no information on populations trends, but it is believed to be stable.
This species is found in leaf-litter and under rocks at low elevations on grassland, scrub areas as well as disturbed habitats.
The species will be locally threatened by activities which lead to habitat loss (urbanisation, road construction), however given the wide range these are not considered to threaten the species.
There are no conservation actions known for this species, and none are receommended.
