A taxonomic revision of the genus Desmopsis is presented. Within the genus Desmopsis 25 species are recognized, 9 of which are new, with one new combination. Distinguishing morphological characteristics are discussed, and a dichotomous key to all species is given. The species treatments include descriptions, full synonymy, geographical and ecological notes, vernacular names, and taxonomic notes. Distribution maps are presented of all species, and a complete identification list of exsiccatae examined is included.
