Abstract

Five new polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed for the coral reef damselfish Pomacentrus amboinensis. Twenty-four individuals from two Great Barrier Reef populations were genotyped at the five loci, with numbers of alleles per locus ranging from 6–23 and observed heterozygosity between 0.42–0.92. In addition, the cross-species testing of six primers developed for Stegastes partitus revealed one primer (SpGATA40) that was also polymorphic for P. amboinensis. Due to high levels of polymorphism (≥14 alleles) in at least four of the six loci and a high proportion of tetranucleotide repeats, these microsatellite markers should be useful for parentage assignment as well as other investigations of individual relatedness.
