The genus Deuterocohnia was erected in 1894 by Carl Christian Mez in the Flora Brasiliensis. The genus name honors the German botanist Ferdinand Julius Cohn and microbiologist ( 1828-1898 ). It was a genus Cohnia present, by the Greek prefix deuteros for " second ", a new name was formed ( Cohnia Kunth synonym of Cordyline Comm. R.Br. ex and Cohnia Rchb f. Synonym of Oncidium Sw. ).
In the generic monograph by Smith & Downs (1974-1979) seven species are listed. By Spencer & Smith ( 1992) the species of the genus Abromeitiella Deuterocohnia have been assigned. The systematics of this group has been controversial, a German research project this ended in 2009 and confirmed the merger of the two genera.
Today includes about 19 species in the genus Deuterocohnia:
Smooth-edged succulent leaves, spine tipped, with dull glossed silvery leather surfaces packed in tight elongated rosettes branching to form extensive rine gray hard edged sadistic cushions. Whew! Small green bromel beaked blossoms in tidy clusters native to rock crevices of Argentina--this is extremely slow growing and easily rotted if the base is kept too wet. Daunting.
