There is not enough information to assess the conservation status of this species. Further research is needed on the number, size and trend within the populations of this species. It is therefore listed as Data Deficient (DD).
This species is endemic to the Canary Islands, and is recorded from the Islands of Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro. From Tenerife, there are recent shells known collected by Blauner (type locality, not specified), and some fossils from Costa de el Draguillo. Shells have been found on La Gomera (fossil from Bco. de Machal, recent only from Hermigua in the north-east of the islands.). From El Hierro, it is only known from the Parador in the south of the island.
There is no information available on the population size or trend of this species.
This species lives in the soil of the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal).
The threats to this species are not known.
Monitoring of trend and size of populations on the three islands where the species occurs is strongly suggested.
