Moss plants produce a large number of male gametes to increase the chances of fertilisation, as the eggs are located in the archegonium and the male gametes have to swim in water to reach the eggs for fertilisation to occur. The male gametes are called antherozoids.

Bryophytes and pteridophytes require water as a medium for reproduction. Egg or the female gametophyte remains intact within the mother plant.Male gametes have to be released into water, swim along with the help of water droplets and reach the female gamete to fertilise it. 
Male gametes are susceptible to many dangers during the travel to reach female gamete. Hence, they are produced in large number by Bryophytes and Pteridophytes.
Male gametes are produced in antheridia and are called as sperms.Female gametes are produced in archegonia and are called as eggs.
