A smaller and more twiggy tree than the type, of more erect, narrow habit. Leaves tapering and wedge-shaped at the base, the lobes ending in long, often curved, claw-like points. The oldest of named varieties, figured in an Austrian work in 1792, and known as the eagle’s claw maple. The plant described appears to be part of a clone for which the epithet laciniatum has the sanction of long usage; var. laciniatum as understood by Loudon (Arb. et Frut. Brit., 1838, Vol. 1, p. 449 and fig. 121) is not the true eagle’s claw maple.
