As discussed in

Megasporogenesis -

The process of formation of megaspores from the megaspore mother cell is called megasporogenesis. 
Ovules generally differentiate a single megaspore mother cell (MMC) in the micropylar region of the nucellus. It is a large cell containing dense cytoplasm and a prominent nucleus. 

- wherein

Meiosis results in the production of four megaspores .
