This species is endemic to a single site on La Gomera and although this site is not thought to face any threats to this site, there remain the possibilities that some event could impact the site in the future, in which case, it will directly qualify for a threatened category. Hence it is listed as Near Threatened (NT), almost meeting the criteria B. Conservation actions should include protection of the habitat and long-term monitoring.
This species is endemic to the Canary Islands where it is restricted to La Gomera at Roce de Aluce, Lomo de Higueral and La Cabezada (see Alonso et al. 1995)
