Listed as Data Deficient as there is no information available on the population size, trends, habitat and threats. Research should be conducted in order to determine the status of this species. In view of its very restricted global distribution, future research may show that A. lanzarotensis warrants a threatened status.
This species is endemic to Lanzarote, Canary Islands (Spain) (Rasmont 2014).
The species has been recorded on Asteriscus intermedius (Asteraceae) in altitudes up to 600 m asl, from February to May and then in September (Hohmann et al. 1993).
There is no information on the habitat preferences of this species, although it can be assumed to occur on Mediterranean-type shrubland.
The species is not listed in any National Red Lists or Red Data Books. There are no conservation actions in place for this species, and it is unknown whether its distribution overlaps with any protected areas within its very restricted range. Further research should be conducted to determine the population size and trends, habitat and threats to the species.
