Redonda (genus)

Redonda is a butterfly genus from the subfamily Satyrinae in the family Nymphalidae. The genus is endemic from the Páramos in the Cordillera de Mérida in Venezuela, in northern South America. Known species and subspecies are separated in distinct mountain ranges. Females in the genus are smaller than males, and there is some degree of wing deformation in females of R. bordoni which might point to incipient brachyptery in this species. There are at least one additional unnamed subspecies of R. empetrus and one unnamed species.

Conservation[edit]

R. bordoni is listed as endangered in Venezuela's Red Book of Fauna.
