  4. ^ 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.
  5. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. grandidentatum (Torr. & Gray) Desmarais.
  6. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. leucoderme (Small) Desmarais.
  7. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. nigrum (Michx.f.) Desmarais.
  8. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. saccharum: A. s. subsp. skutchii (Rehder) E.Murray.
  9. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. tataricum: A. t. subsp. ginnala (Maxim.) Wesm.
  10. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. pectinatum: A. p. subsp. maximowiczii (Pax) E.Murray. Not to be confused with A. maximowiczianum Miq.
  11. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. cissifolium: A. c. subsp. henryi (Pax) E.Murray.
  12. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. flabellatum (Rehder) E.Murray.
  13. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. oliverianum (Pax) E.Murray
  14. ^ Also "fullmoon maple", which is also used for A.japonicum. This is made more complex by A. japonicum var. microphyllum being a synonym of A. shirasawanum.
  15. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. sinense (Rehder) De Jong.
  16. ^ Often treated as a subspecies of A. campbellii: A. c. subsp. wilsonii (Rehder) De Jong.
  17. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. longipes: A. l. subsp. amplum (Rehder) De Jong.
  18. ^ Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. platanoides: A. p. subsp. lobelii (Ten.) Gams, or A. cappadocicum: A. c. subsp. lobelii (Ten.) De Jong.
  19. ^ Sometimes considered a subspecies of A. miyabei: A. m. subsp. miaotaiense (P.C.Tsoong) E.Murray.
  20. ^ van Gelderen (p. 245) concludes this is probably an aberrant A. platanoides closer to cultivar status.
  21. ^ The identity of the second parent is uncertain, with these two species cited by different authors.
