  "description": "<p><strong>Abstract</strong></p>\n\n<p>Members of the speciose subtribe Pronophilina (Nymphalidae: Satyrinae) are Neotropical butterflies predominantly found in&nbsp;cloud forests. A few species live exclusively in open habitats above&nbsp;the tree line: paramo and puna biomes. This habit requires special&nbsp;adaptation to particular physical and climatic conditions of the&nbsp;oreal zone in the tropics. At least ten species of the endemic genus&nbsp;Redonda Adams and Bernard inhabit the paramos of the Venezuelan Andes. We herein &nbsp;describe seven of them: R. castellana Viloria&nbsp;and Camacho, n. sp., R. centenaria Viloria and Camacho, n. sp.,&nbsp;R. chiquinquirana Ferrer-Paris, n. sp., R. frailejona Ferrer-Paris and&nbsp;Costa, n. sp., R. lathraia Viloria and&nbsp;Camacho,&nbsp;n.sp.,&nbsp;R.&nbsp;leukasmena Viloria and Camacho, n. sp., and R. lossadana Ferrer-Paris,n. sp., and rank Redonda empetrus bolivari Adams and Bernard to&nbsp;full specific status.</p>\n\n<p><em><strong>Nuevas mariposas sat&iacute;ridas de los Andes&nbsp;Venezolanos (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)</strong></em></p>\n\n<p><strong>Resumen</strong><br />\nLos miembros de la riqu&iacute;sima subtribu Pronophilina (Nymphalidae: Satyrinae) son mariposas neotropicales que se encuentran&nbsp;predominantemente en bosques nublados. Pocas especies viven exclusivamente en ambientes abiertos, por encima de la ceja de monta&ntilde;a: biomas de p&aacute;ramo y puna. Este h&aacute;bito demanda adaptaci&oacute;n&nbsp;especial a condiciones f&iacute;sicas y clim&aacute;ticas particulares de la zona&nbsp;oreal tropical. Al menos diez especies del g&eacute;nero end&eacute;mico Redonda&nbsp;Adams y Bernard habitan los p&aacute;ramos de los Andes de Venezuela.&nbsp;Describimos aqu&iacute; siete de ellas: R. castellana Viloria y Camacho,&nbsp;n. sp., R. centenaria Viloria y Camacho, n. sp., R. chiquinquirana&nbsp;Ferrer-Paris, n. sp., R. frailejona Ferrer-Paris y Costa, n. sp., R.&nbsp;lathraia Viloria y Camacho, n.sp., R. leukasmena Viloria y Camacho, n. sp., R. lossadana Ferrer-Paris, n. sp., y elevamos Redonda&nbsp;empetrus bolivari Adams and Bernard a estatus espec&iacute;fico.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
