Oberea pupillata measures between . These beetles have a long and slender body. Head, thorax and abdomen have all about same width, and elytra are not tapered. Head and antennae are black and antennae are shorter than body. Pronotum is orange with two elongated black spots on the sides. The elytra are mostly blackish, yellowish at the base and rather hairy. The body is orange, with black markings on the sides and below the abdomen. The last abdominal segment shows a black mark. The legs are orange.
This species in quite similar to Oberea oculata (Linnaeus, 1758).


Adults fly from May to September. The life cycle lasts from two to three years. Usually a single egg is laid in a branch of the host plant, after making an incision on the bark. Larvae are xylophagous. These stem borers live and feed mostly in longitudinal galleries on etruscan honeysuckle (Lonicera etrusca).
