After fertilisation the resulting cell, which gives rise to a new individual is the zygote.The fusion of these two cells is called fertilization and it produces a diploid cell with 46 chromosomes - twice the amount found in each gamete. The fertilized egg is now called a zygote.The cells from each parent that combine to form the zygote are called gametes
