the zygospore is diploid cell due to the conjugation of two cells

The vegetative cells of Spirogyra are haploidic while the zygospores are diploid. The photo shows the sexual reproduction of Siprogyra that a conjugation tube is shown. After fertilization, the zygotes will be surrounded by sporopollenin-containing walls. Sporopollenin is very resistant that it enables the zygotes to survive in harsh environment. Asexual reproduction is observed in this kind of organisms as well. It is achieved by fragmentation and cell division.
