Abstract

We report the development and characterization of three new microsatellite markers in the tsetse fly, Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae). Fifty-eight alleles were scored in 192 individuals representing six natural populations. Allelic diversity ranged from 9 to 28 alleles per locus (mean 19.3 ± 5.5). Averaged across loci, observed heterozygosity was 0.581 ± 0.209, and expected heterozygosity was 0.619 ± 0.181. Cross-species amplifications of the G. pallidipesloci in other tsetse fly taxa are reported.
