Aristida leptopoda is known as White Spear Grass by cattlemen. Its often found in the presence of other heavy soil colonisers such as Dicanthium sericeum and Panicum queenslandicum. Once the seed has fully ripened the inflorescences will readily become airborne during gusts of wind and may pile up against fences and sheds and other objects.
"Found mainly on cracking clay soils from central and southern Queensland to northern New South Wales." (Simon, B.K. & Alfonso, Y. 2011. Ausgrass2)
