Necrolemur ("grave lemur") is an extinct genus of primate.

The 25 centimetres (9.8 in) long creature closely resembled a tarsier; it was a nocturnal hunter with very large eyes and ears. Necrolemur had sharp teeth, which it probably used to bite through insect armor. Like modern tarsiers, it also possessed long fingers and toes, and a lengthy, balancing, tail. It was also characterised by a short face, a narrow gap between the eyes, a tubular ectotympanic and a relatively large brain.

Fossils of this animal have been found in western Europe.
