This species is endemic to the island of Tenerife, where it inhabits the whole northern part of the island.
The size and trend within the subpopulations are stable.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal), exceptionally in degraded laurel forests.
Potential threats to this species are destruction of the habitat by urbanisation, agriculture and road construction. However the destruction of the entire habitat is not very likely.
Only small numbers of the subpopulations are under local conservation schemes.
