Poyntonophrynus beiranus is found in two distinct and disjoint ecoregions: the Zambezian flooded grasslands and the Zambezian coastal flooded savanna; elevation of occurrence is less than 1000 meters above sea level. Breeding is thought to occur in emphemeral pools formed in lowland floodplains subsequent to intermittent heavy rains. The conservation status is classified as Least Concern, even though there is little data to support population estimates or trend.
