interkinesis

interkinesis An abbreviated form of interphase occurring between the first and second nuclear divisions of meiosis in some organisms. The chromosomes begin to uncoil, and there is at least partial re-formation of the nuclear envelope. However, in other organisms meiosis proceeds straight from anaphase I to metaphase II, more or less skipping telophase I, interphase, and prophase II.
