    We characterize 15 microsatellite loci from two microsatellite libraries developed from the Australian agamid lizards Amphibolurus muricatus and Ctenophorus pictus. All loci were tested for amplification in four other agamids: Ctenophorus fordi, Ctenophorus decresii, Chlamydosaurus kingii, and Physignathus lesueurii. These loci were highly polymorphic within and across species, with nine to 12 loci amplifying for each species tested.
