We developed 12 polymorphic microsatellite markers from a salt-marsh sedge Carex rugulosa. The number of alleles per locus ranged from two to four, with an average of 2.75. The observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.067 to 0.600 and from 0.128 to 0.620, respectively. These simple sequence repeat markers will allow the identification of genets and evaluation of the genetic diversity of C. rugulosa.
