Assessment Rationale:

Listed as Data Deficient as there is little or no information on the population size, trends, habitats and threats to the species. Further research should be conducted to establish the status of the species throughout its range.

There is no information on the population size and trends of this species. However, it is a rather rare species, represented by only a few specimens in museum collections (E. Scheuchl pers. comm. 2014).

Habitat and Ecology

There is no information available on the habitats of this species, although it can be assumed to occur on Mediterranean-type shrubland. It is on the wing from the beginning of February (Hohmann et al. 1993) until the end of April (Warncke 1968). The species is probably oligolectic on Brassicaceae like other related species, and the  flower records for the species include Cakile maritima (Hohmann et al. 1993). 

Major Threat(s):

Conservation Actions

The species is not included in any National Red Lists or Red Data Books. It is not the target of any specific conservation action and it is not known whether it occurs in protected areas throughout its range. Further research should be conducted in order to establish the population size, trends, habitats and threats to the species.
