Vindullus Simon, 1880 is revisited and two species, erroneously allocated in Olios Walckenaer, 1837, are transferred to the genus. Vindullus fugiens (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1890) comb. nov. and V. guatemalensis (Keyserling, 1887) comb. nov. were described based on male specimens from Guatemala. Both species are redescribed and illustrated. A revised diagnosis is given for the genus including newly evaluated characters for freshly collected females of V. angulatus Rheims \& Jager, 2008. In addition, an illustrated identification key for all known males of the genus is provided, new distribution records are listed for V. angulatus Rheims \& Jager, 2008, V. gibbosus Rheims \& Jager, 2008 and V gracilipes (Taczonowski, 1872) and a distribution map is provided showing the updated distribution of the genus.
