Abstract

Six polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the temporary social parasitic ant Lasius fuliginosus by a highly efficient enrichment procedure. Observed allele numbers ranged from three to 20 per locus, whereby four out of the six tested loci had more than 10 alleles and showed both observed and expected heterozygosities greater than 70%. For each locus we present suitable primer sequences. With these microsatellite markers we will be able to reveal colony and population structure of L. fuliginosus.
