The species is found in many localities and does not face any major threats. Hence although it has a small range is not considered threatened. It is listed as Least Concern (LC).
This species is endemic to the Madeiran islands. It is restricted to Porto Santo where it is found at scattered locations all over the main island and on at least two of the offshore islets (Seddon 2008).
Population trends are uncertain, but are likely to be stable.
This species is found under rocks in grassland.
There are no known threats to the species, although there is localised loss of habitats due to tourist developments along the coast and adjacent to roads.
Research actions include population monitoring and habitat monitoring, especially for the mainland populations.
