Population structure and migration patterns for the highly venomous cubozoan box jellyfish (Chironex fleckeri) are unknown. We describe the development of seven polymorphic microsatellites for this species, the first such loci to be characterized for any cubozoan or indeed cnidarian species other than some corals. These markers will be suitable for use in population and behavioural genetic studies.
