The invasive Caribbean false mussel, Mytilopsis sallei (Récluz, 1849) (Dreissenidae), established in Asia during the 20th and 21st centuries, is recorded for the first time in southern Vietnam in brackish-water Ba Tai Lake (Kien Giang Province). Colonies of this species were found in 2017, mollusks were attached to stones on the muddy bottom, at a depth of 0.3-0.7 m and salinity of 15-20‰, and water temperature of up to 35-40°C. M. sallei was not registered in Baс Lieu Province (Mekong Delta), in mangroves of the Red River Delta and Con Dao Archipelago during recent surveys (2017-2019) as well not known in regional literature; closest localities are southern Thailand and Hainan Island.
