Stingless bee that can only be found in the Yucatan peninsula?

In pyramids and Mayan iconography, the descent of the bee god is appreciated, which brings humans the sacred gift of honey to keep them healthy. It is Ah Mucen Cab, the deity of the stingless bees or “melipona” bees.

The legend (according to the Mayan codex), says that the gods came down to earth to deliver the most precious gift, which was life. The seed of life, or bees that are about to be born. Mayans reflected a lot on the bees and thought that they were their ancestors. That’s because they have different roles: there are watchmen, architects who build the honey pots, where the bees that are going to be born are placed, others go for food, nectar and pollen, others are dedicated to cleaning the garbage or taking out the bees that died, others are the nurses, who are above the ones that are going to be born giving them heat.
