We describe the isolation and development of 20 polymorphic microsatellite loci for the ornate dragon lizard Ctenophorus ornatus. Characterization of these loci in 29 individuals from a single population yielded between five and twenty alleles per locus. Expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.32 to 1.00 and only one locus deviated from Hardy–Weinberg expectations. There was no evidence of linkage disequilibrium between any pair of loci.
