Acer duplicatoserratum is a species of maple, native to southern and eastern mainland China (Anhui, Fujian, Guizhou, Henan, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Shandong, Zhejiang) and Taiwan.[2]

Acer duplicatoserratum is a small tree,[2] in the same group of maples as Acer palmatum.[3] The leaves are palmately lobed with seven to nine lobes, 2.3–10 cm long and 3–10 cm broad.[2]

There are two varieties:[2]

  • Acer duplicatoserratum var. duplicatoserratum. Taiwan, endemic; listed as Vulnerable. It occurs in submontane broadleaved forest scattered in central to northern parts of the island.[4] Its altitudinal range is 1,000–2,000 m (3,300–6,600 ft). Leaf petioles always pubescent.[2]
  • Acer duplicatoserratum var. chinense C.S.Chang. Mainland China, in deciduous forests at elevations of 200–1,500 m (660–4,920 ft) asl. Leaf petioles pubescent only when young, becoming hairless as they grow.[2]
