The huntsman spider genus Vindullus Simon 1880 (Araneae, Sparassidae) is revised. Olios gracilipes Taczanowski 1872 is transferred to the genus and recognized as a senior synonym of the type species, Vindullus viridans Simon 1880, for which the former male syntype was designated as a lectotype. Vindullus kratochvili Caporiacco 1955 is placed as incertae sedis and four new species are described: Vindullus undulatus new species, Vindullus gibbosus new species, both from Peru and Vindullus angulatus new species, from Colombia and Venezuela and Vindullus concavus new species from Brazil.
