Difference Between Mitospores and Meiospores

Spore: A haploid reproductive cell, usually unicellular, capable of developing into adult without fusion with another cell.
Mitospores (Asexual spores)Mitospores
1. These spores are formed by mitosis from the parent protoplast
2. Chromosome number of the daughter cell is same as that of the parent cell
3. The individual formed upon germination of mitospores are genetically identical to the parent
4. Purely vegetative and asexual in character
Meiospores (Sexual spores)
meiospores
1. These spores are formed by meiosis from the parent diploid protoplast
2. Chromosome number of the daughter cell is half the number as that of the parent cell, therefore always haploid
3. The individual formed upon germination of meisospores are genetically genetically and functionally different from the parent
4. Formed by sexual reproduction purely sexual in character
