A Cofunctor is a structure from category theory dual to Functor.

A Functor is defined by the operation fmap:

fmap :: (a -> b) -> (f a -> f b)

This means that its dual must be defined by the following operation:

cofmap :: (b -> a) -> (f b -> f a)

Since beginning his investigations, the author of this package has discovered that this pattern is at least as commonly used as Functor. In fact, many ubiquitous Haskell types (e.g. [], Maybe, ((->) a) turn out to have a Cofunctor instance.
