Sequencia is a monotypic genus of the botanical family Bromeliaceae, subfamily Pitcairnioideae. The sole species is Sequencia serrata (originally Brocchinia serrata).

Formerly in the genus Brocchinia, the genus was separated based on DNA sequence details (hence its name) and restriction site characteristics.[1]
