We describe eight polymorphic microsatellite loci for facultatively eusocial hover wasps (Hymenoptera: Stenogastrinae). Loci were isolated from a partial genomic library of Liostenogaster flavolineata DNA, enriched for GA repeats and an unenriched library of Liostenogaster vechti DNA. We present our results of cross-species amplification in three species: L. flavolineata, L. vechti and Parischnogaster alternata.
