Abstract Bambusa arnhemica is a bamboo species endemic to northern Australia. We isolated and characterized nine microsatellite loci from this species. The number of alleles ranged from 2 to 16 with an average of 6.8, and expected heterozygosities from 0.40 to 0.84 with an average of 0.69. The markers described here will be useful to investigate clump structure, evolution of the bamboo flowering wave, patterns of gene flow, and the biogeographic history of B. arnhemica in Australia.
