The established breeding range of Toadflax Brocade in Britain is confined to parts of the Kent and Sussex coasts, typically favouring areas of shingle where the main food plant Purple Toadflax grows. A number of East Anglian records in recent years show a possible expansion of the breeding range in the UK.
Larvae recorded in Norfolk for the first time in September 2019 at Hellesdon by D. Longe. Five larvae were initially found on 3rd September feeding on Purple Toadflax in the recorder's garden.
