The clingfish, Lepadogaster lepadogaster is a reef fish species, abundant in temperate nearshore rocky reefs of the Eastern Atlantic and central and Eastern Mediterranean. To study genetic variability and population connectivity of this species, we developed fifteen polymorphic microsatellite markers. These were tested in one population and all but one, showed no departure from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium. Average overall observed heterozygosity was 0.66 and allelic richness was 8.9.
