Etymology

Latin digitus ‘finger’ + Rebutia (the compound should correctly be Digitirebutia). For the affinity to Rebutia and presumably the shape of the plant body; that of Digitorebutia digitiformis was described by Backeberg (Lobivia digitiformis Backeb., Kaktus-ABC [Backeb. & Knuth] 414. 1936) as elongato-digitiformis ‘elongated to finger-shaped’.
