We describe eight new micro satellite loci for hawkmoths of the Hyles euphorbiae complex. They are polymorphic (except for one locus in one population) with 2–18 alleles per locus, an expected heterozygosity between 0.14 and 0.94, and an observed heterozygosity between 0.10 and 0.75. As typical for Lepidoptera, the yield of new loci was low due to the presence of microsatellite gene families and variable flanking regions. These microsatellites provide informative results in population studies of the West Palearctic H. euphorbiae complex since cross amplification for H. euphorbiae and H. tithymali was successful for all but one locus.
