Camponotus renggeri and C. rufipes are two important ants of the Brazilian Cerrado savanna, a threatened Biome. Thirty-one microsatellites were characterized and cross amplified for both species. 27 loci were polymorphic for C. renggeri (H-E = 0.575 and H-O = 0.575) and 24 for C. rufipes (H-E = 0.567 and H-O = 0.564). The average number of alleles per locus was 6.9 for C. renggeri and 5.9 for C. rufipes. The high levels of genetic diversity of these novel markers make them useful tools for genetic and evolutionary studies involving these ecologically important ants, and for the conservation of the Cerrado.
