Assessment Rationale:

Global and European regional assessment: Data Deficient (DD)
EU 27 regional assessment: Data Deficient (DD)

Listed as Data Deficient in view of the lack of information on the population size and trend and the threats affecting the species. However the species has a very restricted range so further research is needed to assess the status of the species as it could be threatened.

Geographic Range:

Andrena lineolata is endemic to the Canary Islands (Hohmann et al. 1993, Báez and Ortega 1978, Ortiz-Sánchez 2011). It has been recorded in Tenerife only.

Major Threat(s):

Conservation Actions

Despite the extreme restriction of the range (Tenerife only), the species is not Red Listed or subject of targeted conservation action.
Further research is necessary to determine the ecology of the species, and to understand the details of the population size, trends and threats. It is likely to be present in protected areas.
