Generally, gamete formation is not a part of asexual reproduction. But in haploid parthenogenesis, a rare form of parthenogenesis that occurs in a few species of bees, nematodes, and plants, offspring develop from haploid eggs to produce haploid adults. We still consider this a type of asexual reproduction as gametes are formed but there is no fusion of gametes to form zygote, .
