1. Telophase
The last stage of mitosis , following anaphase . The two sets of chromosome s have finished moving to opposite ends of the cell and begin to decondense. Nuclear membranes reform around each set of chromosomes. The stage ends when two complete nuclei have been formed. Cytokinesis begins shortly after the end of telophase (and mitosis).

2. Telophase I
The stage in the first meiotic division of meiosis that follows anaphase I . The two sets of chromosome s have finished moving to opposite ends of the cell . Cytokinesis occurs, forming two daughter cells. Nuclear membranes do not form and the chromosomes do not decondense at this point, however, as they would in mitosis .

3. Telophase II
The last stage in the second meiotic division of meiosis which follows anaphase II . The two sets of chromosome s have finished moving to opposite ends of each of the two cells produced during the first meiotic division . Cytokinesis occurs, resulting in four haploid cells.

4. Telophase
The final stage of mitosis in which the chromosomes migrate to opposite poles, a new nuclear envelope forms, and the chromosomes uncoil. The last phase of nuclear division in eukaryotes when the segregated chromosomes uncoil and begin to reform nuclei. This is immediately followed (in most cases) by cytokinesis .
