Acer maximowiczianum Miq., Arch. Néerl. Sci. Exact. Nat. 2: 478 (1867).


  • Homotypic
    • Acer nikoense (Miq.) Miq., Arch. Neerl. Sci. Exact. Nat. 2: 478 (1867), isonym.
    • Acer nikoense (Miq.) Maxim., Bull. Acad. Imp. Sci. Saint-Pétersbourg 12: 227 (-228) (1867).
    • Acer nikoense Maxim., Bull. Acad. Imp. Sci. Saint-Pétersbourg. 12: 227. 13 No. (1867). nom. illeg., superfl.
      • Note:: Maximowicz cited "Negundo? nikoense Miq.” as the basionym for A. nikoense and published the latter name as a new combination. Delendick (Brittonia 32: 286-290. 1980) treated “A. nikoense, Maxim.” as a new species name and excluded the basionym. Delendick’s treatment is in contrary to Melbourne Code Art. 48 and its Note 1 and Art. 7.3. Inadvertently Delendick thus created A. nikoense as a superfluous later homonym. However, Miquel based his original diagnosis on two trifoliate leaves that are now known to have originated from Parthenocissus tricuspidata, therefore the above names are more correctly found in the synonymy of the Parthenocissus tricuspidata taxon page.
