Species of the genus Sadocus Sorensen, 1886 are conspicuous gonyleptids that occur in Chile and Argentina. Here, the genus is revised for the first time and the cladistic analysis based on morphological characters does not corroborate its monophyly unless a phylogenetically unrelated species is excluded (explained further on). A new classification is proposed for the seven species left in the genus and considered valid, of the 13 nominal species previously recognized. Two out of the seven valid species are considered as species inquirendae: Sadocus allermayeri (Mello-Leitio, 1945) {[}= Carampangue ailermayeri Mello-Leitao, 1945] and Sadocus nigronotatus (Mello-Leitao, 1943) {[}= Carampangue nigronotatum Mello-Leitao, 1943]. The following synonymies are proposed: Sadocus bicornis (Gervais, 1849) {[}original combination = Gonyleptes bicornis Gervais, 1849] is a junior synonym of Sadocus asperatus (Gervais, 1847) {[}= Gonyleptes asperatus Gervais, 1847]; Sadocus conspicillatus Roewer, 1913, Sadocus exceptionalis (Mello-Leitio, 1946) {[}= Araucanoleptes exceptionalis Mello-Leitio, 1946] and Sadocus gutiatus Sorensen, 1902 are junior synonyms of the valid name Sadocus polyacanthus (Gervais, 1847) {[}= Gonyleptes polyacanthus Gervais, 1847]; and Sadocus calcar (Roewer, 1913) {[}= Lycomedes ca/car Roewer, 1913] is a junior synonym of the valid name Gonyleptes horridus Kirby, 1819. Sadocus bmsiliensis Soares \& Soares, 1949 is not congeneric with Argentinean/Chilean species of the genus according to the cladistic analysis and is here synonymized with Discoryrius catharinensis (Mello-Leitio, 1923 {[}. Sadocus catharinensis Mello-Leitao, 1923]). (AU)
