MeiosisI:
Interphase
Prophase
Metaphase
Anaphase
Telophase
Meiosis II:
Prophase II
Metaphase II
Anaphase II
Telophase

In that order IRC.

Haven't you missed Interphase II before Prophase II? And what about Cytokinesis?

Having said that, they appear to be missing from this also http://www.accessexcellence.org/RC/VL/GG/meiosis.php

Well because there is no further DNA replication there is no second round of interphase.  As for cytokinesis I'll have to check on whether it merely falls under telophase or not.

Edit: cytokinesis is considered a separate phase of mitosis, you are indeed correct sir.

I used to remember it as IPMAT, then the rest is easy.
