This species is widespread in the lowland of La Gomera.
The size and trend within the subpopulations are stable. The sub-populations are scattered.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal),border of Laurisilva, Brezal, extensive meadows, ruderal areas of cultivated land ruderal areas and humid anthropogenic habitats.
In the borders of the distribution, it is affected by urbanization and intensifying agriculture, possibly also by tourism, logging and road constructions.
Protection of habitats is required, even if many sites are already in protected areas. Valido et al. (1999) considered this species as LR/lc (low risk).
