Facilitators / Compilers/s:
This species is endemic to the island of Tenerife in Spain. It has an extremely restricted area of occupancy (AOO; 4 km2) and is known from only one location. However, there are no known threats to the species. It is therefore considered as Near Threatened (NT), almost meeting criterion B as, due to its extremely restricted AOO, it is prone to any stochastic events, such as fires. Further research is needed upon the distribution, population size and trend of the species.
This species is endemic to the Teno Peninsula in the far northwest of the Island of Tenerife (Neiber et al. 2011) in the Canary Islands, Spain
There is no information available on the population size or trend of this species. It is present in some abundance at the site (K. Groh pers. comm. 2016).
This species is found in dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso Basal).
There are no major threats to this species. There is no ongoing habitat disturbance. It is present on an extremely steep slope and hence it is not likely to be affected by urbanization.
There is no conservation action in place for this species. Further research is needed upon the distribution, population size and trend of the species.
