Bulimulus simrothi is endemic to Isabela Island in the Galápagos Islands. It was not found alive over the past three years of collecting on Galápagos Islands. However, only three collecting trips of one week each were done on Isabela Island, so the species' presence may have been overlooked. Exact range area is unknown, but is certainly less than 5,000 km². Main threats to the species are Habitat alteration and/or destruction by introduced species.
