Bulimulus albermalensis is endemic to Isabela Island in the Galápagos Islands. The range of suitable habitat on this island could be greater than 100 km², but certainly is not more than 5,000 km², therefore the species potentially meets the threshold for EN B1. The species has not been found alive over the past three years of collecting on Galapagos Islands. However, not all of the area where this species could be potentially found has been surveyed, therefore currently it is assessed as Data Deficient.
