Ehrharta (formerly known as  Microlaena; Poaceae) 4b:177  
Tasmania has six native and four introduced species of Ehrharta.

They are variable in habit and habitat ranging from weeds, to coastal plants to button grass plains to the alpine zone. The inflorescences of the species in Tasmania are more-or-less open panicles. The spikelets are compressed from side to side and have three florets - one fertile floret subtended by two sterile florets reduced to lemmas. One or both of the sterile lemmas have awns.
