(Gaudich.) S.W.L.Jacobs & J.Everett
Austrostipa crinita is a species of grass that grows in coastal parts of midwest Western Australia.
It was first collected from Shark Bay in Western Australia by Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupré, botanist to the expedition of Louis de Freycinet. It was published by Gaudichaud-Beaupré in 1829 under the name Stipa crinita. That name remained current until 1996, when the Australian species of Stipa were recognised as meriting their own genus. Thus Austrostipa was erected, and this and other species were transferred into it.
