Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. heldreichii: A. h. subsp. trautvetteri (Medwed.) E.Murray.
  2. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. opalus: A. o. subsp. hispanicus (Pourret) E.Murray)
  3. ^ Whether this or A. barbatum is the proper name of this taxon is subject to contention, though Michaux's original material was a mix of A. saccharum and A. rubrum. It is often treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. floridanum (Chapm.) Desmarais.
  4. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. grandidentatum (Torr. & Gray) Desmarais.
  5. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. leucoderme (Small) Desmarais.
  6. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. nigrum (Michx.f.) Desmarais.
  7. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. skutchii (Rehder) E.Murray.
  8. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s Wolfe, J.A.; Tanai, T. (1987). "Systematics, Phylogeny, and Distribution of Acer (maples) in the Cenozoic of Western North America". Journal of the Faculty of Science, Hokkaido University. Series 4, Geology and mineralogy 22 (1): 1–246. 
  9. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. tataricum: A. t. subsp. aidzuense (Franch.) De Jong
  10. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. tataricum: A. t. subsp. ginnala (Maxim.) Wesm.
  11. ^ Now often considered a subspecies of A. sterculiaceum: A. s. subsp. franchetii (Pax) E.Murray.
  12. ^ Now sometimes considered a subspecies of A. pectinatum: A. p. subsp. forrestii (Diels) E.Murray.
  13. ^ Now often considered a subspecies of A. davidii: A. d. subsp. grosseri (Pax) De Jong.
  14. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. pectinatum: A. p. subsp. laxiflorum (Pax) E.Murray.
  15. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. pectinatum: A. p. subsp. maximowiczii (Pax) E.Murray. Not to be confused with A. maximowiczianum Miq.
  16. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. cissifolium: A. c. subsp. henryi (Pax) E.Murray.
  17. ^ Also "Fulmoon Maple", which is also used for A.japonicum. This is made more complex by A. japonicum var. microphyllum being a synonym of A. shirasawanum.
  18. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. flabellatum (Rehder) E.Murray.
  19. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. oliverianum (Pax) E.Murray
  20. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. sinense (Rehder) De Jong.
  21. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. wilsonii (Rehder) De Jong.
  22. ^ The homonyms A. montanum Garsault and A. montanum Daléchamps ex Lam. are synonyms of A. pseudoplatanus and A. opalus respectively.
  23. ^ Sometimes classified as a subspecies of A. caudatum: A. c. subsp. ukurunduense (Trautvetter & Meyer) E.Murray.
  24. ^ Often treated as a synonym of A. oblongum
  25. ^ Possibly a synonym of either A. kwangnanense or A. paxii
  26. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. longipes: A. l. subsp. amplum (Rehder) De Jong.
  27. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. platanoides: A. p. subsp. lobelii (Ten.) Gams, or A. cappadocicum: A. c. subsp. lobelii (Ten.) De Jong.
  28. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. miyabei: A. m. subsp. miaotaiense (P.C.Tsoong) E.Murray.
  29. ^ van Gelderen (p. 245) concludes this is probably an aberrant A. platanoides closer to cultivar status.
  30. ^ The identity of the second parent is uncertain, with these two species cited by different authors.
