This species is endemic to the northeast of Gran Canaria, where it is restricted to Jardin Canario, which is a garden conserving Canarian plants and, although there are threats of habitat degradation as result of urbanisation from adjacent villages, as such most of the habitat is protected. Thus the species is assessed as Critically Endangered (CR) B2ab(iii).
