Might be worth pointing out that the tree known as the sycamore in
Britain, Acer pseudoplatanus - a major weed tree species - has winged
seeds. The tree known in America as the sycamore - Platanus occidentalis
- appears to be the London Plane, so known because it was planted across
London during the industrial revolution on account of its resistance to
air pollution.

Might we need a way to enter multiple names for English and American

A. pseudoplatanus:

P. occidentalis:

While art work is great, the picture is of a stylized maple leaf. The
sycamore tree seed is a ball, somewhat smaller than a golf ball. But
sperical. No wings. The maple seed is the one that is the two bladed

I had both trees in my yard growing up in Indiana, USA and am very
familiar with both.
