This species is endemic to the Canary Islands, where it is found on La Palma, scattered on the eastern slopes and inside of the Caldeira as well as in a few locations in the southern part of the island.
This species has possibly been impacted by recent wild-fires which affected this zone in the last 10 years. The subpopulations are scattered, but widespread on the Island of La Palma.
This species occurs mainly on pine forests and lowland zones.
The major threats are from increased frequency and intensity of wild-fires which have been through this zone in the last 10 years, as well as logging.
There are no known conservation actions for this species, but most of the area is in protected areas. Valido et al. (1999) suggested this species was at low risk of extinction.
