Orthosoma brunneum is a species of beetle in the family Cerambycidae, the only species in the genus Orthosoma.[1] The genus name Orthosoma was also previously used for a microsporidian genus. As the name is pre-occupied by this beetle genus, the name for the microsporidian has been changed to Orthosomella.[2]
