Gametophyte
A gametophyte is the haploid multicellular stage of plants and algae. Each cell contains only a single set of chromosomes. The gametophyte produces male or female gametes by mitosis (division of a cell into two.) In mosses the gametophyte phase is the phase which is most commonly known. The picture above is moss in its gametophyte stage.
