New microsatellite loci were developed for the Desert iguana (Dipsosaurus dorsalis) through GS-FLX 454 pyrosequencing. We selected 15 primer pairs that were tested on 23 individuals from San Isidro area in the southern part of Baja California Peninsula. We observed low to medium genetic variation among loci (mean number of alleles per locus = 7, mean HO = 0.696). These loci are the first characterized for D. dorsalis and they are expected to be useful for population level studies in this species. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
