This species is widespread in the Mediterranean Sea and is relatively abundant there and in the Canary Islands and Cape Verde. Its populations there are at least stable, and the species’northerly distribution in the Mediterranean may increase with warming sea temperatures in the future. Little is known of populations outside the Mediterranean, but there are no known major threats and it is assessed as Least Concern.
