In order to obtain more hybrid offspring with excellent traits of Saccharum spontaneum L., this research used the YN 82-116 as a female parent to hybridize with the male parent GT 05-3595. The SSR primer MSSCIR1 combined with capillary electrophoresis technology was used to identify true and false hybrids of 48 hybrid progenies and to analyze genetic diversity. A total of 28 SSR fragments were amplified, the polymorphic bands ratio was 67.9%, and the F1 generations were all real hybrids. The parental and offspring inheritance similarity coefficients range from 0.00 to 0.97, with an average of 0.58. The overall genetic similarity of filial generation is high, but the genetic differences are large. UPGMA cluster analysis showed that 37 offspring were clustered with their father, with a closer genetic distance and higher genetic similarity. The results can be used in the later stage to guide the process of cross breeding, improve breeding efficiency, and effectively introduce germplasm resources that are densely S. spontaneum L.
