We describe eight polymorphic microsatellite loci for the proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus). These markers were tested with 33 samples, collected from Sabah and exhibited a mean of 6.25 alleles per locus and a mean expected heterozygosity of 0.674. All but one locus were in Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium, and no evidence for linkage disequilibrium was detected between any loci. Another 30 loci were isolated but remain to be fully examined. These markers should be useful for the future study of population genetic diversity and genetic structure in this emblematic species.
