Neoporteria occurs in coastal hills (lomas costeras) on rocky soils. It is frequent and the population stable. The major threats are illegal collection and industrialization to process steel. The coastal formations in this region have vegetation corresponding to the Desierto Costero Huasco (Huasco coastal desert). Due to occasional precipitation, this vegetation has more permanence and continuity than the vegetation occurring farther north.
