So, I was in botany class the other day and we were going over the model of a flower describing the parts. The ovum, the egg and polar bodies and someone said another name for the polar bodies and my teacher said she would accept the answer if we knew what a meta nucleus is.

Naturally no one knew, so that's why I'm here, does anyone know what this means in the context of biology?

I did a search and came up with nothing, except this chemistry book that refers to meta protons in relation to the meta nucleus.

Perhaps your teacher meant a nucleus within a metastable state? (I.e. excited)

I found the answer in a medical dictionary. According to said text it is

Metanucleus: The egg-nucleus after its extrusion from the germinal vesicle
