Abstract :Ten novel di- and tri-nucleotide polymorphic microsatellite loci were identified to aid in genetic structure analysis of the widely distributed pronghorn spiny lobster, Panulirus penicillatus. Genetic variation among populations was explored, and we compared our results to those of a previous mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis (Abdullah et al. 2014) conducted in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. A total of 129 P. penicillatus individuals were collected from three localities in Japan (Hachijojima Island, Okinawajima Island and Ishigakijima Island) and one in Taiwan (Taitung). F-statistical analysis revealed no significant genetic differences among animals collected at the different localities, in agreement with data from the previous mtDNA study. The combined data suggest that high-level gene flow exists among the explored localities, probably caused by the extended planktonic larval stage and the prevailing Kuroshio Current. On the scale of the northwestern Pacific, the results obtained in both studies suggest that P. penicillatus forms a single unique panmictic population, or at least that the several breeding grounds exchange significant amounts of genetic material.
