In the past, Urticales (Urticaceae, Moraceae, etc.) were kept well separate from Rosaceae, largely because of the very reduced and usually wind-pollinated flowers of the former group, and the other families now included in Rosales were usually placed elsewhere yet again.
Moraceae are laticiferous plants with stipulate leaves and often boxy fine venation; the flowers are small and densely aggregated; the inflorescence axis is often large, becoming much accrescent and ± fleshy in fruit.
Caterpillars of danaine butterflies quite commonly use Moraceae as food plants; both they and their usually preferred Apocynaceae are rich in latex, although Moraceae do not often have cardenolides (Ackery and Vane-Wright 1984).
