The adductor longus muscle is a muscle of the human body. It is a part of the adductor group of the thigh, that as the name suggests adducts the thigh.

It originates on the pubic body just below the pubic crest and inserts into the middle third of linea aspera.

It is innervated by the obturator nerve, specifically branches of the anterior rami of spinal nerves L2, L3, and L4.

The adductor longus muscle forms the medial wall of the femoral triangle.
