"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 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.

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!
