G. Rogersensis have ranges limited to “calcareous bedrock outcrops” (Nekola 2001) that have been undisturbed. It has also been recognized, that G. Rogersensis is highly sensitive to fire management. For these reasons, it is believed that this species should be “given a high priority for conservation.” (Nekola 2001)

Gastrocopta rogersensis is found in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin. (NatureServe, 2006) The name rogersensis, is a tribute to the town of Rogers, where the first specimen was noticed. (Nekola, J. 2001)
