A spermatid is a haploid male germ cell that has completed the process of meiosis. Immediately after meiosis, spermatids are round cells that do not resemble mature sperm. Round spermatids must go through the process of spermiogenesis in the testis to form structures, such as the head, tail, and acrosome and to become elongated spermatids.
