Ah-Muzen-Cab[pronunciation?] is one of the Maya gods of bees and honey. He is possibly the same figure as "the Descending God" or "the Diving God" and is consistently depicted upside-down. The Temple of the Descending God is located in Tulum. The bees used by the ancient Maya were Melipona beecheii and Melipona yucatanica, species of stingless bee.
