Currently there are two known venusian coorbitals : 2002VE68 and 2001CK32 . Both are discussed in this paper.

2002 VE68 has a thread on its own in this forum .  
Hereby an animation of the 2001CK32 in rotating frame on Venus covering 600 years from now.  
The orbit of 2001CK32 is described as being "chaotic" in the paper above
