orimus funereus is a species of beetle in family Cerambycidae. It is found in Greece, North Macedonia, Albania, Belgium, Croatia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Slovakia, Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is somewhat similar to another cerambycid, Rosalia alpina, which however is narrower and has three pairs of black spots. Also Herophila tristis has a similar body shape and markings, but the antennal segments 2 and beyond are much shorter.
