Abstract Several cycad species in the genus Macrozamia are threatened by habitat loss, fragmentation and pollinator loss including at least 11 that rely on the thrips Cycadothrips chadwicki for pollination and therefore their continued survival. We developed 18 highly polymorphic microsatellite markers (mean alleles per locus = 11.1) by 454 shotgun sequencing and present primer options for an additional 14,219 loci.
