We developed eleven microsatellite markers for Hymenaea courbaril for the purposes of studying spatial genetic structure and gene flow. The microsatellite loci were screened in 44 trees from two populations. All loci were polymorphic, exhibiting between two and 16 alleles, and levels of expected heterozygosity (He) from 0.174 to 0.909. Departures from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium were detected for all loci in one population. The estimated null allele frequency is low or moderate. No locus combinations exhibited linkage disequilibrium.
