This species is relatively widespread and there is no known specific threat to this species. It is therefore considered to be Least Concern (LC).
This species is endemic to the island of Tenerife, where it is widespread and abundant.
The size and trend within the subpopulations are stable.
This species lives in the dry temperate shrub vegetation (Piso basal), but also in salt marshes at sea level and in the pine forests at higher elevations (Pinar).
Potential threats to this species are destruction of the habitat by quarrying, urbanisation, road construction or by other reasons. However the destruction of the entire habitat is not very likely.
Only few subpopulations are under local conservation schemes.
