English translation by Mario Beltramini The Attalea cohune reaches the 15 m with even 9 m long leaves. The Attalea cohune Mart. The pinnate leaves, mostly bound upwards and up to 9 m long, are of a dark green colour with 0,9 m long pinnulae regularly distributed along the rachis on a same level; the rachis rotates, by its mid length, placing the pinnulae on a vertical level. The ,5 m long inflorescences come out between the leaves, initially erect, then hanging, due to the weight of the fruits and are formed by a central axis rachis , from which depart several lateral floriferous branches rachillae , bearing flowers of cream-white colour, either only male or with some female ones at the base and male at the apex.

The fruits are ovoid or ellipsoid, cm long, with a diameter of cm, of yellowish-brown colour and contain from one to three seeds. The growth is initially slow. It requires a full sun exposition on draining soils, possibly sandy, and a great availability of water; it bears even moderately saline soils and therefore it may be employed in proximity of the sea. The huge leaves are utilized by the natives for roofing the houses and the pinnulae of the leaves of the young plants are used for fabricating the typical sombreros.

The fruits have a pulp with a very pleasant taste and at times are eaten locally; they are, on the contrary, frequently utilized as fodder for the cattle. The apical gem, which has a delicate taste, is considered as a dainty, but it entails the death of the plant.

The oil is utilized for the production of margarine and in the cosmetics industry; purified, is and excellent lubricant and seems to have also promising characteristics as bio-fuel. The seeds, cleaned and polished, are utilized for trinkets or for realizing small handicrafts. Synonyms: Orbignya dammeriana Barb. Dahlgren ex Standl.

Glassman divided the group into five genera—a more narrowly defined Attalea, Orbignya, Maximiliana, Scheelea and Ynesa. However, a few species have flowers that are intermediate between these four types, including A. Cook in Experts disagree about the number of species in the genus Attalea broadly defined. In , Dutch taxonomist Jan Gerard Wessels Boer estimated that there may be as many as species in the genus. In their Field Guide to the Palms of the Americas Andrew Henderson and coauthors recognised 29 species in the genus, while Sidney Glassman recognised 65 species in his treatment of the group.
