Microsatellites were isolated from Girella tricuspidata (Girellidae) and screened for 64 individuals collected from coastal reefs in New South Wales, Australia. All seven loci tested were highly polymorphic, having seven to 42 alleles with average heterozygosities between 0.44 and 1.0. One locus (GT1N8) had a significant excess of homozygotes, probably due to the presence of null alleles. These microsatellite loci should be informative for examining population genetics of this species.
