Blepharidachne kingii is a species of grass known by the common name King's eyelashgrass. It is native to the Great Basin in the United States, where it grows in habitat such as pinyon-juniper woodland. It is rare in California and Idaho, but it is one of the most common grasses of the northeastern deserts of Nevada.
Blepharidachne kingii is a perennial bunchgrass growing in clumps or mats of stems 3 to 14 centimeters tall. The curved, twisted, stiff, hairlike leaf blades are up to 3 centimeters long. The inflorescence is a purplish to straw-colored panicle of finely hairy spikelets.
