Spathiphyllum cochlearispathum is a plant species of the genus Spathiphyllum in the family Araceae. It is native to southern Mexico and often cultivated.[2]

Taxonomic history[edit]

The species was originally described by Frederik Michael Liebmann in a separate genus Hydnostachyon, which he described as having a concave (spoon-like) spathe Spatha foliacea persistens cochleariformis, from which he formed the species epithet cochlearispathum.[3] The species was moved to the genus Spathiphyllum by Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler.[4]
