Deuterocohnia consists of a small number of mat forming succulents from Argentina and Bolivia. Some of the species are also encountered under the genus name Abromeitiella. The genus is named after the German botanist and bacteriologist Ferdinand Julius Cohn (1828-1898). Deuterocohnia comes from the Greek for "second Cohnia", since there was already a genus Cohnia.

Their flowers, on a short inflorescence, are green and inconspicuous. They are propagated by seeds or division.

They are in general hardy to zone 9 in full sun or light shade.
