Abstract

Fifty-two microsatellite loci were characterized in 22-31 unrelated females of the wasp (Microstigmus nigrophthalmus) collected from the Mata do Paraiso, Vicosa, M.G., Brazil. Fifty-one of these loci were developed from a microsatellite-enriched genomic library derived from M. nigrophthalmus and one was derived from the wasp, Ormyrus nitidulus. The genus Microstigmus represents an independent origin of social behaviour in the Hymenoptera and is thus of great potential in the study of social evolution.
