Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed for the tetraploid plant species Stypandra glauca which is common on granite outcrops in Western Australia. Amplification and genotyping trials were conducted on 48 individuals from two sampling localities. All 10 loci revealed multi-banding patterns with up to 4 bands visible in individuals consistent with tetraploidy. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 6 to 32 (mean = 12.5). The proportion of observed heterozygotes at each locus ranged from 0.32 to 0.98 (mean = 0.73). These polymorphic microsatellite markers will facilitate further analysis of population genetic structure and connectivity in Stypandra glauca.
