The gametophytes of bryophytesand less commonly ferns and lycopods can develop a group of cells that grow to look like a sporophyte of the species but with the ploidy level of the gametophyte, a phenomenon known as apogamy.
It appears likely  that all apomixis in plants is facultative; in other words, that “obligate apomixis” is an artifact of insufficient observation missing uncommon sexual reproduction.

Apogamy is the development of an unusual haploid sporophyte from the gametophyte without the fusion of gametes. Bot Gaz 3: Facultative apomixis means that apomixis does not always occur, i. In plants with both apomictic and meiotic embryology, the proportion of the different types can differ at ptridophytes times of year,  and photoperiod can also change the proportion.
lteridophytes This definition notably does not mention meiosis. Consequently, there are almost as many different usages of terminology for oteridophytes in angiosperms as there are authors on the subject.
