Omorgus is a genus of beetles of the Family Trogidae.

Its species occur mostly in Africa and South America, although some species are found north up to Canada, others in Australia or Asia.

Only two species are found in Europe (and neither are endemic): O. italicus is found in Italy as well as India and China, and O. suberosus occurs in Spain, but also in the Americas and Australia.
