The Brongersma's toad was initially placed in the genus Bufo and then Pseudepidalea (a synonym of Bufotes), but in 2013 it was moved to its own genus Barbarophryne.[2]
The natural habitats of Barbarophryne brongersmai are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, Mediterranean-type shrubby vegetation, intermittent rivers, intermittent freshwater marshes, rocky areas, hot deserts, arable land, ponds, and canals and ditches. Its habitat is primarily semi-arid sparsely vegetated areas, and it is also thought to be adapted to some disturbed areas. It is threatened by habitat loss.
