This study reports the successful isolation of highly informative microsatellite marker sets for two marine serolid isopod species. For Serolis paradoxa (Fabricius, 1775), 13, and for Septemserolis septemcarinata (Miers, 1875), eight polymorphic microsatellite markers were isolated using the reporter genome enrichment protocol. The number of alleles per locus (N(A) ) and the observed heterozygosity (H(O) ) encompass a wide range of variation within S. paradoxa (N(A) 3-31, H(O) 6-89%) and S. septemcarinata (N(A) 2-18, H(O) 9-94%). The suitability of the newly isolated markers for population genetic studies is evaluated.
