This newly described species is listed as Critically Endangered because there is no known population and the last record is from 1971; So if it remains, it is assumed that each population must be small. This species was collected from Llano de Ovejas, a small plateau at an altitude of 2400-2800 m. This species has only been found based on three specimens in the museum. It was last collected in 1971, the other two copies are undated. In fact, there is not much that can be done in terms of conservation as this species is never seen again despite intensive research. There is no evidence other than three skins.
