Discussion:

Sabicea ambigua Standi. Field Mus. Publ. Bot. 7: 49. 1930.

Type. Colombia, Triana 1847.

A photo of the type of A. ambigua (Triana, 1847, from Colombia) from K indicates that Standley had planned to publish this collection under another specific epithet, but later used “ambigua” in his publication.
