"Said to be Heralds of the Hivemother, these bees are half-remembered myths found only in children's stories. If these bees were to exist, and be proven so, the implications would be... divine."

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

It's a tricky bee to get due to it's very precise timing required, which can be difficult if you've got the wrong behaviour on your queen.

Another mythical species supposedly only found during the twilight hours of the morning when bred from a Somnium and Somnolentus mix..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Did they not teach you when twilight was in school? Pah, fine! It's usually seen as the time between 1 and 4 in the morning.
