Listed as Data Deficient as there is only one known described specimen of this species. Therefore, there is no information available on the population size, trends, habitats, ecology and threats to the species.
Andrena hillana is endemic to the Canary Islands. The species is described and only known from Fuerteventura (Gusenleitner and Schwarz 2002).
There is no information available on the population size or trend of this species. However, there is only a single known record and so the species is assumed to be very rare within its extremely restricted range.
There is little is known about the habitat and ecology of this species, although it can be assumed to occur on Mediterranean-type shrubland. According to Warncke (1968), Andrena hillana flies in March, but Hohmann et al. (1993) state that it flies from January to March.
The species is not listed on any National Red Lists or Red Data Books and is not the subject of any targeted conservation action. It is not known if the species is found in any protected areas. Further research is required to establish the details of the population size and trends, habitat, ecology and threats to the species.
