Odondebuenia balearica is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea, recorded from eastern mainland Spain to Cyprus. Although O. balearica is known from scattered records within this range, it can be locally abundant and is likely under-represented in surveys. The population is assumed stable. There are no known widespread threats. Therefore, O. balearica is assessed as Least Concern.
