Fifteen microsatellite loci for the decollate snail, Rumina decollata.

Conservation Genetics Resources , 2:287-289.

We characterized 15 microsatellite loci from the decollate snail, Rumina decollata. Loci were screened in 21 individuals and several individuals of the congener Rumina saharica. There was ample allelic diversity (6–12 alleles per locus) but observed heterozygosity values were extremely low (0–0.421). This was expected given the high self-fertilization rate in this species. Ten of the 15 loci were successfully amplified in R. saharica. These loci provide tools for examining the population genetics and taxomomic boundaries in R. decollata and its allies.
