The present account reports on the occurrence of Charybdis (Goniohellenus) edwardsi Leene & Buitendijk in the oceanic waters of the Arabian Sea. The species was originally recorded from Malabar and Port Natal by A. Milne Edwards in 1861 (=Goniosoma truncatum). Alcock (1899) treated the species (G. truncatum, reported by A. Milne Edwards) as a synonym of C. (Gonioneptunus) truncata (De Haan). Subsequently, Leene and Buitendijk (1949) renamed this species as C. (Goniohellenus) edwardsi since it was found to be different from the true C. (Goniohellenus) truncata (Fabricius).
