Drakaea glyptodon is a sexually deceptive terrestrial orchid endemic to Western Australia. We developed fourteen polymorphic microsatellite markers to assess genetic variability within and among populations. Moderate to high levels of variation were detected at most loci. There was evidence for inbreeding with high inbreeding coefficients for some loci. This suite of markers will be used to assess population genetics and investigate the causes of rarity and speciation of Drakaea.
