This species lives in a very restricted area in the central part of the Jandia Pensinsula on Fuerteventura.
There is no information available on on the population size of this species.
This species is a rock dweller; the habitat consists of lichen-rich vulcanic rocks including a sparse grassy vegetation.
The main threats are from goats and tourist recreation, although the impact on the habitats is more uneven and hence the species is assessed on limited range.
This area is already under protection. However, it is highly recommended to control the grazing by goats. A removal of these animals from the area would be the most efficient measure to be taken.
