In this study we provide eight polymorphic microsatellite markers for the two South American patel- logastropods Nacella magellanica and N. deaurata. Allelic diversity ranged from 5 to 57 alleles per locus. Observed heterozygosity varied between 0.1 and 0.98. Three of the four loci designed for N. magellanica cross-amplified also with N. deaurata, and two loci vice versa. Six of the microsatellites successfully cross-amplified with the sister taxon N. mytilina. This set of microsatellites provides a suitable tool for population genetic and phylogeographic studies.
