    Abstract

    We describe 16 polymorphic microsatellite markers in two congenic species of mud snails, Batillaria attramentaria and B. multiformis, as well as the conditions of multiplexing and the cross-species availability of these loci. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 8 for B. attramentaria and from 2 to 21 for B. multiformis. The set of markers described here will constitute efficient tools for detecting the loss of their genetic diversity due to the tsunami disturbance of the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake.
