We developed 13 polymorphic microsatellite loci for the rhizomatous perennial sedge Baumea juncea. The number of alleles per locus ranged from two to six, with averages of 3.0 and 3.2 at two South Australian populations. Observed and expected heterozygosity at variable loci within each population ranged from 0.034 to 1.000 and 0.034 to 0.766, respectively. These markers will allow the identification of genets, as well as the study of spatial genetic structure and genetic differentiation among populations.
