Norway Maple is a member (and is the [[type species]]) of the section ''Platanoidea'' Pax, characterised by flattened, disc-shaped seeds and the shoots and leaves containing milky sap. Other related species in this section include ''[[Acer campestre]]'' (Field Maple), ''[[Acer cappadocicum]]'' (Cappadocian Maple), ''[[Acer lobelii]]'' (Lobel's Maple), and ''[[Acer truncatum]]'' (Shandong Maple). From Field Maple, Norway Maple is distinguished by its larger leaves with pointed, not blunt, lobes, and from the other species by the presence of one or more teeth on all of the lobes.<ref name=rushforth/><ref name=afm/>

It is also frequently confused with the more distantly related ''[[Acer saccharum]]'' (Sugar Maple). Sugar Maple is easy to identify by clear sap in the [[Petiole (botany)|petiole]] (Norway Maple has white sap). The tips of the points on Norway Maple leaves reduce to a fine "hair", while the tips of the points on Sugar Maple leaves are on close inspection rounded. On mature trees, Sugar Maple bark is more shaggy, while Norway Maple bark has small, often criss-crossing grooves. While the shape and angle of leaf lobes vary somewhat within all Maple species, the leaf lobes of Norway Maple tend to have a more triangular shape, in contrast to the more squarish lobes often seen on Sugar Maples. The seeds of Sugar Maple are globose, while Norway Maple seeds are flattened. Sugar Maple usually has a brighter orange autumn color, where Norway Maple is usually yellow, although some of the red-leaved cultivars appear more orange. The tree tends to leaf out earlier than most maples and holds its leaves somewhat longer in autumn.<ref name=rushforth/><ref name=afm/>

If this is a false positive, then you're right, and the bot is wrong - you don't need to explain why.
