This species is only present in a small area which is under pressure from encroaching urbanisation and road construction. Based on the existing information and the fact that this species occurs in one location with an area of occupancy of 4 km2, the species is considered as Critically Endangered (CR) B1ab(iii)+2ab(iii).
This species is endemic to the island of La Gomera. It lives in a small coastal area in the north of the island. This species is recorded from one location and three sites.
There are no data on the population size or trend.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal).
Potential threats to this species are destruction of the habitat by urbanisation and road construction in the nearby Vallehermoso. It can be inferred that the increasing construction activity will severely damage the habitat of this species.
There is no conservation action in place for this species. The ongoing and probably increasing threats by urbanisation and road construction need to be monitored in the future.
