    Abstract

    We have developed eight di- and tetranucleotide Lissotriton microsatellite markers. Eight loci were polymorphic in the palmate newt Lissotriton helveticus and six were polymorphic in the smooth newt L. vulgaris. Polymorphism detected in 33 and 37 individuals per species ranged from 3 to 15 alleles. These markers are suitable for the investigation of population structure, genetic variation and taxonomic identification in the two focal species, and may also be of use in other Lissotriton–Triturus species.
