Acer skutchii, called the cloud forest sugar maple, Guatemalan maple, Mexican sugar maple or Skutch maple, is a species of flowering plant in the genus Acer, native to Mexico and Guatemala.[2] It is considered by some authorities to be a subspecies of the sugar maple, Acer saccharum subsp. skutchii. Occurring in sheltered ravines on mountain slopes, it is found only in a few widely separated relict populations within cloud forests in Mexico and Guatemala.[3]

In 2017, populations growing in the Mexican state of Jalisco were split off as a new species, Acer binzayedii.[4]
