A taxonomic review of the genus Agrostocrinum (Phormiaceae)

The genus Agrostocrinum F. Muell. is reviewed. Two species are recognised, A. hirsutum (Lindl.) Keighery and A. scabrum (R. Br.) Baillon, both confined to southern Western Australia. A distinctive inbreeding maritime race of the latter, found in scattered populations on granites along the south coast, is described as a new subspecies, A. scabrum subsp. littorale Keighery.
