The ecologically important stream invertebrate Gammarus fossarum is a morphospecies that includes at least three genetically differentiated biological species. We developed ten microsatellite markers and tested them in a total of 208 individuals from all three known cryptic species (types A, B and C). All markers were polymorphic and successfully amplified in type A, nine in type B and five in type C. There were up to 11 alleles per marker and species.
