Polymorphic microsatellite loci for the primitively eusocial wasp Ropalidia fasciata (Hymenoptera: Vespidae)

Number: 452, Pages: 12 - 16

A polymorphic microsatellite locus was isolated and characterized from Ropalidia fasciata (Fabricius, 1804), one of the most common in South-East Asia independent-founding polistine wasps (Vespidae: Polistinae). Four other microsatellite loci for which the primer sets were originally developed in two Ropalidia species also showed polymorphism in the size of amplification products in R. fasciata.
