The exotic species, Charybdis hellerii (A. Milne-Edwards, 1867), which entered the western Atlantic through ballast-mediated invasion approximately between 1987 and 1988, is now recorded for the first time from French Guyana. In the western Atlantic, C. hellerii spread extremely fast and is currently well established in a number of localities between Fort Pierce, subtropical Florida (27°N), and as far south as Santa Catarina (27°S), on the warm-temperate coast of Brazil.

Aux environs des années 1987 et 1988, Charybdis hellerii (A. Milne-Edwards, 1867) a été introduite dans l'océan atlantique occidental par l'intermédiaire de l'eau de ballast des navires. Cette espèce est ici signalée pour la première fois de la côte de Guyane. C. hellerii a connu une expansion extrêmement rapide dans l'Atlantique occidental, et est à présent bien établie dans un certain nombre de localités entre Fort Pierce, sur la côte subtropicale de la Floride (27°N) et jusqu'à Santa Catarina (27°S), dans les eaux tempérées chaudes de la côte brésilienne.
