This figure shows Saprolengnia oogonium with oospores inside. Oospores are diploid.
Can you tell how the oospore is formed?
After meiosis, oogonium and antheidium are formed. They give rise to the male nuclei and the eggs. After fertilization, zygotes are produced and they will then develop to oospores, which are diploid.
It's a bit to say that the gametangia are formed after meiosis as they are single-celled. I believe the initial cell is a multinucleate diploid cells and then it undergoes meiosis to give the eggs and male nuclei.
