This species is known from a restricted range, with seven sites on the coastal areas of Gomera. The known threats comprise increasing urbanisation, road construction and agriculture, which affect the quality and quantity of habitats in the south of the island. The species is listed as Near Threatened (NT), but in case of continuing threats, the available habitats and hence the species could rapidly decline, which might cause a change of status to Vulnerable (VU)B1ab(iii).
This species is endemic to the southern and western parts of the island of La Gomera. This species is recorded from seven locations and seven sites.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal).
This species is threatened due to urbanisation, road construction and agriculture. This particularly relates to the subpopulations in the south of the island.
There is no conservation action in place for this species. The subpopulations require future monitoring and probably conservation measures have to be considered.
