A revision of the genus Craspeduchus Stal is made, redescribing the species previously known [C. defessus, C. uhleri, C. nigrolimbatus, C. xanthostaurus, C. aequatorialis, C. pulchellus and C. bilimeki] and describing 2 new species [C. matudai and C. brasiliensis ] collected in Brazil and Bolivia. The intraspecific variability of the genus is discussed and the claspers and spermathecae of most species are illustrated. A key for the separation of species is included. New distributional data for C. bilimeki, C. pulchellus, C. uhleri and C. xanthostaurus are given.
