Austroeupatorium is a genus of plants native primarily to South America, including herbaceous perennials and shrubs.[2] The native range is focused on eastern South America[3] and extends as far north as Panama and Trinidad and as far west as Bolivia.[2]

The species A. inulifolium is native to South America, from Panama to Argentina. It has been introduced to Sri Lanka,[2] Indonesia,[2][4] Taiwan,[2][4] the Philippines,[4] and Sumatra.[2] It is a highly invasive species in the Knuckles Range in Sri Lanka.[5][6] It can be either a herbaceous perennial or a shrub and can grow up to two meters tall. It particularly colonizes disturbed areas such as roadsides and fields prepared for planting.[2]
