The Fuerteventura Rock Grasshopper is common in habitats with scarce vegetation, and is probably not affected by human activities. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern (LC).
The Fuerteventura Rock Grasshopper is endemic to Fuerteventura (Husemann and Hochkirch 2007, Hochkirch and Görzig 2009). Its extent of occurrence is ca 2,400 km².
No data on population size and trends are available. However, the species is widespread and common on Fuerteventura. The population trend is unknown.
Arminda fuerteventurae is common in dry vegetation with large amounts of bare ground and rocks.
The species is probably not strongly affected by human activities, but it may locally threatened by urbanisation and touristic development.
No conservation measures are in place for this widespread species, although it is found in protected areas. More research into its ecology and population trend is needed.
