Eighteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed for the banded coral shrimp, Stenopus hispidus, using 454 sequencing of microsatellite enriched genomic libraries. The 18 loci were characterized in 24 individuals from the Indonesian Archipelago. We found a mean of 8. 7 alleles per locus and observed levels of heterozygosity ranged from 0. 21 to 1. 00. Two loci deviated significantly from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and no significant evidence of linkage disequilibrium was observed. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
