Recently, a class of coherent states of a particle in a Penning trap was derived byFernandez and Velazquez (J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 42 (2009) 085304).By means of the Wigner function and density matrix associated with these states,we show that they are fully consistent with Morikawa's definition of the decoherence degree and hence they provide apossibility to directly access the decoherence process in a Penning trap.
