Cross-species amplification and development of microsatellites for six species of European Coenagrionid damselflies

We describe the cross-amplification and development of new loci for six species of closely related European damselflies. First, twenty-nine published microsatellites for the damselflies Coenagrion puella and C. mercuriale were multiplexed using M13-tagged primers, tested on 23 individuals, and then cross-species amplified on 21–26 individuals of C. armatum… CONTINUE READING
