"The 'Regal' bee is held as a sovereign of apiculture, rooted in the origin of the species itself."

The Regal Bee is a Tier 3 Social Bee species found by cross-breeding.

It's one of the first bee species the player encounters that has a usable item as it's special produce, and arguable one of the most important usable items for beekeeping - Royal Jelly.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
This snobbish species has ancestry in the Floreo and Clarus families and can only be bred near Goldenrod flowers..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Verdant-Vibrant Queens can produce Regal offspring, but they need Goldenrod flowers nearby. Anyone could tell you that!

Special Produce

When a Regal Bee is used in a Basic Apiary and fills Frames, they can produce when extracted.


When Cross-Breeding the Regal Bee with the following other species there is a chance for the offspring to mutate into a new species!

As with all mutations, the offspring of the hybrid queen needs to also be a hybrid, so this can effect the chances listed below.
