The fourth stage of prophase I, marked by dissolution of synaptonemal complex and the tendency of the recombined homologous chromosomes of the bivalents to separate. The X-shaped structures are called chiasmata.

Diplotene

 

 

Synaptonemal complex disintegrates. Terminalisation begins at diplotene stage i.e. chiasmata start to shift towards end.
