"Acerites multiformis Lesquereux, The flora of the Dakota group: U. S. Geol. Survey Mon. 17, p. 156, pl. 34, figs. 1-9, 1892." (Lesquereux 1892)



From Hollick (1930) (p. 100)

"This leaf evidently belongs in the genus Acerites, and it agrees so closely with certain of Lesquereux's figures that its specific identity can hardly be doubted, especially when compared with his Figures 4 and 1. This species has been made to include such diverse leaf forms that almost any leaf with the generic characters of Acerites could be referred to it - for example, Acer antiquum Ettingshausen (1867) (p. 259, pl. 3, fig. 17) from the Cretaceous of Saxony, which may be merely an Old World representative of Acerites multiformis."
