"Buzzing with barely contained power, Apis Fulmen is a holy alliance between science and nature. Sparks fly in their wake, thunder cracks from glowing wings, while white-hot lightning arcs to nearby honeycore."

The Lightning Bee is a Tier 4 Social Bee species found when a hive with certain bee species is exposed to lightning.

Lightning bees are unique in the fact that they are not formed by cross-breeding, but during thunderstorms in the Swamps.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
Try to supercharge Apis Reverentia during a tropical thunderstorm - what could possibly go wrong?.

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
They say lightning doesn't strike the same hive twice, but it might need to if you're going to have any hope of finding Apis Fulmen! Ahah ha! You'll have to find some kind of hallowed, indestructible bee too!
