''Apis dorsata'', the giant honey bee, is a honey bee of South and Southeast Asia, mainly in forested areas such as the Terai of Nepal and sometime even in Malaysia and Singapore. The subspecies with the largest individuals is the Himalayan cliff honey bee — ''A. d. laboriosa'' — but typical ''A. dorsata'' workers from other subspecies are around 17–20 mm long.
