Abstract

We report the isolation and characterization of eight microsatellite markers in a rare desert cyprinid fish, the leatherside chub. This taxon has recently been divided into two species (Lepidomeda aliciae and Lepidomeda copei) based on genetic, ecological and morphological data, and we explore the utility of these microsatellite loci in both species. All eight loci show promise as highly polymorphic markers in L. aliciae, but only three of the markers appear to be useful in L. copei.
