The diagnostic characters of the genus Docodesmus Cook, 1896 are evaluated. Members of the genus are clearly recognizable by the anterior collum, paranotal and tergite margin lobations. Two different types of gonopods, corresponding to different geographic areas, are found. The potential close affinities of Docodesmus with several other pyrgodesmid genera are discussed. This study revealed that Docodesmus species carry spinnerets at the epiproct. All 22 species currently assigned to the genus are listed with complete synonymies, citations and diagnoses. Docodesmus cooki Loomis, 1969 is a junior subjective synonym of D. haitiensis Loomis, 1934 (syn.n.) and Docodesmus griseus Loomis, 1941 is a junior subjective synonym of D. angustus Loomis, 1941 (syn.n.).
