This species' habitat has been severely reduced by cultivation of fruit vineyards, potatoes and other cash crops. Remaining subpopulations are now confined predominantly to road verges and small fragments where they are threatened by a lack of fire, alien invasive plants and road verge clearing. Agricultural pest control has also caused a decline in some subpopulations.
