This species is relatively widespread and there is no known major threat. It is therefore considered to be Least Concern (LC).
This species is endemic to the island of Tenerife. It lives in the central part of the island always restricted to the fringe of the caldera.
The size and trend within the subpopulations are stable.
This species lives in the humid parts of the local pine forests (Pinar) and in Laurel forests (Laurisilva).
Deforestation and fires can be a threat to this species locally. It is unlikely that a threat would affect the whole range or population of this species.
Large parts of the subpopulations are under local conservation schemes. It status was estimated by Valido et al. (1999) as LR/lc (low risk).
