Abstract

Microsatellite loci were isolated from the Australian field cricket Teleogryllus oceanicus. Seven polymorphic loci were found with an observed number of alleles ranging from eight to 17 and observed heterozygosities between 0.26 and 0.94. One locus was found to be X-linked. These seven loci were also tested for amplification and polymorphism in the congeneric species Teleogryllus commodus. The loci will be used for paternity studies in these species.
