Self pollination can occur as pollinators, primarily Bombus spp.
We suggest mechanisms such as herkogamy (separation of sexual organs) and dicogamy (differential maturation of sexual organs) prevent self pollination in self-compatible species.
Whether and to what extent individual species form asexual clones has important consequences on milkweed reproductive biology studies since self pollinations among wholly or partially self-incompatible clones may affect levels of fruit set.
