From a genomic library enriched for GATA/CTAT and GAAA/CTTT repeats, 12 polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for the Lanyu scops owl (Otus elegans botelensis). Polymorphism of these loci was evaluated in a sample of 58 adult individuals of unknown relationship. The allele numbers of each locus were from five to 25 and the observed heterozygosity of each locus ranges from 0.707 to 0.914. When using these loci in parentage assignment, the probability of false parent exclusion is greater than 0.999. All loci conformed to Hardy-Weinberg expectations.
