Beilschmiedia ambigua is a species of plant in the Lauraceae family.[1] It is endemic to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.[2] It is threatened by habitat loss.

Distribution[edit]

Beilschmiedia ambigua is found in the Marungu highlands, along the Pweto and Moba roads, and also along the western shores of Lake Tanganyika.[3]

Threats[edit]

One concern for the Beilschmiedia ambigua species is that its native habitat has become degraded by logging, and the stream banks have become eroded by cattle.[3]
