This species is relatively widespread and there is no known major threat. It is therefore considered to be Least Concern (LC).
This species is endemic to the island of Tenerife. It lives on the southern and eastern slopes of the caldera of Tenerife from the coast to moderate altitudes. This species is recorded from 12 locations and 35 sites.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal) and Fayal-Brezal.
Potential threats to this species are destruction of the habitat by quarrying, urbanisation, and road construction. However the destruction of the entire habitat is not very likely.
The subpopulations living in the northern parts of the distribution area are under local conservation schemes.
