DistributionThe Lanzarote Sand Grasshopper is endemic to Lanzarote, Isla Graciosa and Isla de Montana Clara (Canary Islands, Spain) (Hochkirch and Husemann 2008). Some older records from Morocco are probably erroneous. Its extent of occurrence (EOO) is c. 1200 km², and its area of occupancy is 400-600 km².
StatusThe Lanzarote Sand Grasshopper is very common on Lanzarote. Even though it has a small extent of occurrence (EOO), it has large and well connected subpopulations, which are only locally threatened by touristic development, urbanisation and volcanism. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern (LC).
HabitatSphingonotus pachecoi occurs in habitats with a large cover of bare ground and coarse-grained soil, which are widespread on Lanzarote. Its altitudinal range is 0 - 580 m.
