Facilitators / Compilers/s:
This species is present in a moderately large area on Lanzarote. However, the area of occupancy is restricted (45 km2) and the population is considered as severely fragmented. Potential threats to this species are tourist and agricultural activities, urbanisation, and road construction, which might affect some subpopulations of the species; the destruction of its entire habitat is not very likely. For this reason, this species is listed as Near threatened (NT), almost meeting criteria B.
Monitoring of the subpopulations is recommended. If a further decline can be observed, this species qualifies for Vulnerable (VU) B2ab(ii,iii).
This species is widespread on Fuerteventura. However, the area of distribution is quite fragmented, the only larger continuous area is found on the Jandia Peninsula.
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 touristic and agricultural activities, urbanisation, and road construction. However, it affects only some subpopulations of the species; the destruction of its entire habitat is not very likely.
Little parts of the subpopulations are under local conservation schemes (northern Jandia Peninsula). The major part of the distribution are is not covered by any conservation measure. Monitoring of the subpopulations is recommended.
