Abstract

Land snails of the genera Mandarina, Euhadra and Ainohelix are useful for understanding the ecology and evolution of speciation and adaptation, so we have developed 17 microsatellite loci for these species. As in other land snails, most of the loci are highly polymorphic compound repeats, with a great size range between alleles. The loci should be useful in understanding gene-flow, genetic structure and speciation in these species.
