Malpighiales internal systematics are still uncertain. This diverse order covers plants as superficially dissimilar as violets and willows, passion-fruit and mangrove, poinsettia and flax. Under the Cronquist system, the families now included in the Malpighiales were dispersed throughout a number of different orders, not all of which belonged to the Rosidae. The most notable of these are the Polygalales, Violales, Theales, Linales, and Euphorbiales.
