Thirteen novel polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the Amazonian Black Manakin, Xenopipo atronitens. The loci were screened using 30 samples from Brazil. A total of 13 loci were variable with number of alleles per locus ranging from 2 to 17, whilst the observed and expected heterozygosities varied from 0.067-0.900 and 0.310-0.910, respectively. Five loci deviated significantly from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, whereas one pair of loci deviated significantly from linkage disequilibrium. The set of markers will be a useful tool for future population genetic and kinship studies of X. atronitens, an Amazonian white-sand vegetation specialist.
