While telophase is at the end of the line of mitosis, meiosis telophase I does not end the process. In mitosis telophase, daughter nuclei appear at the 2 poles of the cell. Then the chromatin fibers of each chromosome uncoils, and the nucleoli reappear. In telophase I, each pole hasa haploid chromosome set, and each chromosome is still composed of 2 sister chromatid. In telophase II, nuclei forom at opposite poles of the cell before the final stage, cytokinesis.
In mitosis, cytokinesis completely separates two daughter cells shortly after the end of mitosis. In meiosis, cytokinesis forms two separate haploid dauhgter cells. Following telophase II, cytokinesis separates the haploid daughter cells, each with the haploid number of chromosomes.
