Abstract

We developed eight polymorphic microsatellite markers for the green leaf bug, Lygus lucorum Meyer-Dür. The number of observed alleles per locus in 48 individuals ranged from three to 13, whereas the observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.133 to 0.810 and from 0.236 to 0.886, respectively. Cross-species amplifications were conducted both within and between generas, and the amplification results indicated that these primers enriched for L. lucorum Meyer-Dür are species-specific.
