Facilitators / Compilers/s:
This species is restricted to Madeiran islands where it is found at widely scattered locations in the coastal regions of Madeira. It is often abundant at sites. The present population abundance, number of sites, the widespread presence over the island and its presence in degraded habitat, suggests that this species is not highly threatened. The mainland populations are susceptible, given the multiple threats causing habitat degradation and impact of non-native species. However, the species is currently viewed as Least Concern (LC), based on current habitat and threats.
This species is restricted to Madeiran islands where it is found at widely scattered locations in the coastal regions of Madeira.
It is often abundant at sites.
This species occurs in grassland, scrub and open sandy areas, where it is found on the ground, amongst low growing grasses and herbs and under stones.
There are no major threats to this species. Habitat degradation and impact of non-native species might impact the species locally.
There are no conservation measures in place or needed.
