Echemus modestus is endemic to Madeira, Portugal. This species was reported from an undefined locality and has not been found since its original description in 1899. It is uncertain whether it represents a unique species and due to the lack of information, it is assessed as Data Deficient. More research on its taxonomy, distribution, ecology and threats is needed in order to assess its extinction risk.
Echemus modestus is only mentioned from Madeira Island (Portugal), but without locality data.
There is no information available about population size or trend of this species.
There is no available information on the habitat of this species. If similar to other congeners, it probably is an active nocturnal hunter at ground level.
The threats to this species are unknown.
No specific conservation measures are in place for this species and it is not known to occur within any protected area. The species has not been found since original description in 1899 (Kulczyński 1899) and needs, first of all, taxonomic clarification. If valid, basic information would be needed on its distribution, ecology and possible threats.
