Range Description

Androcymbium psammophilum occurs in the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, the Canary Islands, Spain (Reyes-Betancort et al. 2004). In Lanzarote it grows in the northern part of El Jarble, Malpaís de Tamia and Caletón Blanco and in Fuerteventura it is located in the northern area, especially Los Jables de Lajares and Corralejo. One more location thought to have disappeared was found again in 2007 (Gobierno de Canarias 2009). It is distributed into ten subpopulations.
The area of occupancy was reported to be 21 km² in 2004 (Reyes-Betancort et al. 2004) and 81.5 km² in 2007 (Gobierno de Canarias 2009). This increase is believed to be due to improved monitoring methods.
