Endemic. Originally described as endemic to Rangitoto Island, this species has turned up on the Paparoa Range (2004) on Chatham Island (2007) and at North Cape (2011). It is probably quite widespread, and has simply been overlooked.

Not threatened. Although regarded as a narrow-range endemic, recent discoveries outside its type locality (Rangitoto Island) suggest that this species is better classified as a Naturally Uncommon, Sparse species - a ranking which was later adopted by Glenny et al. (2011).
