Assessment Rationale:

This species is endemic to the northeast of the island of Tenerife. This range of this species is slightly fragmented, the most continuous area is found in the eastern Anaga Mountains. This species is recorded from 14 locations and 30 sites. This species is relatively widespread and there is no known major threat besides the fact that parts of the range of this species are located in the developing areas of the island, viz. La Laguna, St. Cruz de Tenerefe, and Candelaria, which might cause a problematic situation for these subpopulations. It is therefore considered to be Least Concern (LC), but monitoring of these affected subpopulations is required.
