Facilitators / Compilers/s:
This species is relatively widespread and there is no known major threat. It is therefore considered to be Least Concern (LC).
This species is widespread in the central and western parts of Gran Canaria.
The size and trend within the subpopulations are stable.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso infracanario) and the local pine forests (Pinar), but also in cultivated and ruderal land.
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. Valido et al. (1999) estimated it status as LR/lc (low risk).
