Abstract

Fifteen polymorphic dinucleotide microsatellite loci were characterized for Erynnis propertius using an enrichment protocol. The number of alleles varied from nine to 28 for a sample of 24 individuals. Observed heterozygosities ranged from 0.25 to 0.96. Homozygote excess was detected for 10 loci. Twelve markers successfully amplified in related Erynnis species and eight loci were polymorphic in at least one other species.
