Asterolasia trymalioides, commonly known as alpine star-bush, is a shrub in the family Rutaceae. The species is endemic to Australia. It grows to between 0.2 and 1 metre high. Leaves are 3 to 8 mm long and 2 to 4 mm wide and are shiny green above and covered with white to brown hairs underneath.The edges are revolute. The flowers, which appear in early summer, are yellow, with brown hairs on the outside. The species occurs in heathland and grassland in alpine and subalpine areas of New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Victoria. The species was first formally described in 1854 by Victorian Government botanist Ferdinand von Mueller based on plant material that he collected from the rocky summit of the Cobberas Range.
