There is insufficient information on distribution, population size and population trends to assess this species against IUCN Red List criteria. There are no published records since 1932. Consequently it is assessed as Data Deficient.
This species is endemic to Gran Canaria. Numerous synonyms were given by Mabille in 1882 and 1883 for the Gran Canaria population, but without localized data (except for Helix bathycoma – Telde). Therefore it is possible that the species was formerly more widespread in cultivated areas and the Piso basal (Odhner 1932 mentions Lomos de Catola, Jinamar, Telde and Agüimes). However, there have been no publications since 1932, and the taxon was not not refound or mentioned by Ibanez and his colleagues, not found by K. Groh (K. Groh, pers. comm., 2011).
There is no information on population size and trend.
The species was reported from cultivated areas and temperate shrubland (Piso basal).
There is no information on threats.
There is no information on conservation actions.
