Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Wild
In the wild, Apis Lithohermaea Drones never stray far from their nests, which they build high in the Island’s Redwood trees or on rocky cliffsides. Apis Drones can be seen swarming around the nest in groups, but to get a look at the Queen Apis, one would need to crack open the nest itself. Speaking from experience, this is not a pleasant task, as the untameable Apis Drones are quite territorial. I probably should have seen that one coming, in hindsight. Take caution: Apis stings will significantly weaken any creature which suffers them, and because its stinger is not barbed, Apis can sting multiple times without its stinger being ripped away.
Domesticated
A tamed Apis Queen will lay new drone eggs, and construct a nest that survivors can farm for honey, so long as they remember to wear specialized bee-keeping gear. Said honey is not only sweet and delicious, but laced with scents that land mammals find irresistible. Many hunters use it to bait their traps. Apis Drones will also follow their Queen into battle, so they can be used for self-defense in a pinch.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dino Dossier revealed on 09/20/2016.[1]
  • The Giant Bee's scientific name Apis lithohermaea is that of an actual species of giant bee that dwelled in Miocene Japan. Of course, the real animal was much smaller at only 18 millimeters.[2]
  • The giant bee is the third creature to have a queen, with the first being Araneo (Broodmother Lysrix), and the second being Titanomyrma, although the Titanomyrma queen is not currently in-game.
  • The dossier may reference possible apiarist armor in a future update.
