An Ohio woman is wanted by Cincinnati police for the alleged theft of a butterfly from the Krohn Conservatory.
Police released a photo of suspect Jamie Revis on Friday.
Revis is accused of taking a blue morpho butterfly from the conservatory shortly before 5 p.m. on April 15. The species is native to Central and South American forests, according to officials at the conservatory.
University of Cincinnati biology professors Stephen Matter and Patrick Guerra told WCPO-TV last week that the butterfly was likely dead, given its biological need for a warmer climate than the one in Cincinnati.
