Il est démontré que le crabe ouest-américain Pilummus xantusii Stimpson, 1860, transféré ici au genre Globopilumnus Balss, 1933, possède un appareil stridulant semblable à celui de l'espèce ouest-africaine G. stridulans Monod, 1956. Puisqu'il n'y a aucun représentant du genre dans l'Atlantique occidental, G. stridulans se montre en outre être l'espèce la plus voisine de G. xantusii. Il est démontré qu'une telle distribution discontinue est attribuable aux situations écologiques comparables qui existent sur les côtes occidentales de l'Amérique et de l'Afrique. Il est admis que Globopilumnus et des autres genres coralligènes existaient autrefois dans la région caraïbe, mais qu'ils ont disparus avec l'extinction d'une partie de la faune coralligène des Antilles après l'émersion de l'Isthme de Panama pendant le Miocène supérieur.
