    Fucus serratus and F. evanescens commonly occur on Northern European shores. Nine microsatellite loci were developed for F. serratus (8-22 alleles, observed heterozygosities = 0.367-0.850) and one for F. evanescens (seven alleles, observed heterozygosity = 0.804). Cross-amplification was apparent, as five F. serratus loci were polymorphic in F. evanescens and 2-5 were polymorphic in F. vesiculosus, F. distichus, and F. spiralis.
