Neurachne, commonly called mulga grass, is a genus of Australian plants in the grass family.[1][2][3]

The 1889 book 'The Useful Native Plants of Australia’ records that Neurachne Munroi is "a very rare grass, peculiar to the back country, and only found amongst Mulga scrubs (Acacia aneura and allied species)." Found in the Interior of South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales.[4]
