In answering questions of J. Maříková [Fund. Math. 209 (2010)] we prove a triangulation result that is of independent interest. In more detail, let R be an o-minimal field with a proper convex subring V, and let st: V → k be the corresponding standard part map. Under a mild assumption on (R,V) we show that a definable set X ⊆ Vⁿ admits a triangulation that induces a triangulation of its standard part st X ⊆ kⁿ.
