Bulimulus olla is endemic to Santiago Island in the Galápagos Islands. It is recorded from two subpopulations, each of less than 200 individuals, with a total area of occupancy probably less than 5 km². Shells of this species are found on a much more broader range which suggests that this species was inhabiting a much greater area of Santiago Island sometime in the past. The main threats to the species are introduced ants (Wasmannia auropuctata), destruction and/or alteration of habitat by introduced goats
