I did find results for both of these names on BHL. You have to click on
Scientific Name and then pick the name to see the bibliography for the
name. I see 6 for Achnatherum aridum and 48 for Stipa arida. You found 3
books/journals that have "Stipa" in the title, but there are also 100
scientific names that include "Stipa" and each one has 1 to 1000s of
bibliographic entries.

Or you can search eol.org for the name, click to the literature tab and
then click on the BHL sub-tab.

Either way, I'm sure it is harder than it should be for this use case.
 Always room for improvement.
