Arctosa maderana was recorded from Madeira Island and Porto Santo (Portugal), from unspecified localities. This species is assessed as Data Deficient (DD) due to the lack of knowledge on its taxonomy, distribution, ecology and threats. More research is needed in order to assess its extinction risk.
Arctosa maderana was recorded from both Madeira Island and Porto Santo (Portugal), from unspecified localities (Roewer 1960, Schmidt 1990). This species EOO and AOO are unknown.
The population size and trend are unknown.
There is poor information on species habitat, although the second record was from a sandy beach (Schmidt 1990). The species ecology is unknown. Species of the same family and genus are active epigean hunters of insects and other arthropods.
The threats to this species are unknown.
No specific conservation measures are in place for this species and it is unknown whether it occurs in any protected area. Adults of this species have not been found since the original description (Roewer 1960) and it needs, first of all, taxonomic clarification. If valid, basic information would be needed on its distribution, ecology and possible threats.
