Acer stachyophyllum is an Asian species of maple. It is native to China (Gansu, Henan, Hubei, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Tibet, Yunnan), Myanmar, northern India, Bhutan, and Nepal.[2]

Acer stachyophyllum is a deciduous tree up to 15 meters tall with smooth yellow-brown bark. It is dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers are on separate trees. Leaves are non-compound, up to 11 cm wide and 6 cm across, thin and papery, sometimes with no lobes but sometimes with 3.[2]
