Astroloma is an endemic Australian genus of around 20 species of flowering plants in the family Ericaceae. The majority of the species are endemic to Western Australia, but a few species occur in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.

The genus was first described by Robert Brown in 1810 in Prodromus Florae Novae Hollandiae.[1]

The name Astroloma is derived from the Ancient Greek words astron = a star and loma = a fringe,[2] alluding to five tufts of hairs which form a star at the bottom of the inside of the floral tube.[3][4]
