tetraspore Any one of four spores produced by meiosis in an independent diploid sporophyte (tetrasporophyte) in the life cycle of certain red algae. The tetraspores are produced within a tetrasporangium and germinate to produce the sexual haploid generation. The tetrasporophyte develops from a carpospore.
