Abstract

Sweat bees (family Halictidae) comprise a numerous and diverse group that are arguably among the most socially labile of all insect taxa. Given the lack of highly variable markers for eusocial species of the family, we developed a suite of dinucleotide and trinucleotide markers for one of its members, the Eurasian Lasioglossum malachurum, and used them to amplify DNA from other halictids. Loci were highly variable in L. malachurum and amplified DNA from many other halictids.
