The species was recently described and it is being recorded in new localities which indicate that it could be under-recorded. There is no information about population size or trend, but it is widespread and does not seem to be facing any major threats. It is hence listed as Least Concern.
This species is only found in Spain, mostly in its northern half, in the provinces of Guipúzcoa, Navarra, La Rioja, Zaragoza, Zamora, Segovia, Madrid and recently there has been a record from Cabañeros National Park in the more meridional province of Ciudad Real (Cate 2007, Platia and Gudenzi, 2000, Zapata and Sánchez-Ruiz 2012, 2013; Micó et al. 2013). Only two localities fall outside the Mediterraenan region, although those records are doubtful.

The species is known from 26 localities. The population trend is unknown, but a few years after its description, the species was reported from many Spanish provinces (Zapata and Sánchez-Ruiz 2012, 2013), so it appears to be common and regionally widespread.
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
|Habitat and Ecology:|
This is an obligate saproxylic species. Adult specimens have been found under bark on deadwood, in riparian and Mediterranean oak forest, but no details are available about its larval development. It has been recorded from low riparian lands to areas of up to more than 1,000 m of altitude (Platia and Gudenzi 2000, Zapata and Recalde pers. obs. 2015).
|Use and Trade:||Saproxylic Coleoptera tend to be popular with beetle collectors although trade is rarely an issue, the only exceptions being a few larger species of more dramatic form or colour.|
|Major Threat(s):||There are no major threats affecting the species.|
|Conservation Actions:||There are no conservation actions in place for this species although it is present in protected areas (Cabañeros National Park, Tejera Negra Natural Park).|
