This species is included in the National Red Lists or Red Data Books of the following five European countries / regions: Switzerland (Critically Endangered; Amiet 1994); Czech Republic (Vulnerable; Farkac et al. 2005); Great Britain (Endangered; Shirt 1987); Netherlands (Vulnerable; Peeters and Reemer 2003); Sweden (Data Deficient; Gärdenfors 2010). The Great Britain listing would be revised downwards possibly to Least Concern (LC), as the bee is doing reasonably well at the moment, after a period of extreme rarity (S. Roberts pers. comm. 2013).

It occurs in protected areas.
