Spanish term or phrase: gemelos univitelinos
"Los gemelos univitelinos tienen exactamente los mismos genes."

From a fairly general text on genes. I've found out that 'univitelino' means from a single ovary but I can't find the specific term for it in English.

Uno de los fenónemos genéticos más llamativos es el de los gemelos univitelinos o monocigóticos, que son dos personas idénticas nacidas de un solo óvulo, poseen genotipos iguales y por lo tanto son del mismo sexo

Monoamniotic twins


Explanation:
Monoamniotic twins represent 1-2% of all twins. The mortality rate for monoamniotic twins is significantly higher than for any other twin group, as high as 50-62%. Entanglement of the umbilical cords of the fetuses with subsequent death of one or both twins accounts for most of the fetal deaths. Congenital anomalies, which are present in 15-20% of cases, and preterm labor account for another significant proportion of fetal demises. Cord entanglement is found in 40-70% of monoamnitic twins. The cords may be knotted or simply intertwined. Although Wharton's gel is somewhat protective of the umbilical cords, cessation of blood flow to either of the fetuses may occur if the degree of knotting is significant enough to occlude the vessels. In a retrospective from the Unviversity of Iowa, 20 monoamniotic twin pregnancies were compared with 40 monochorionic-diamniotic controls regarding antepartum and intrapartum complications. No fetal deaths occurred in the monoamniotic twins after 32 weeks, suggesting perhaps that no further tightening of the umbilical cord occurs after this time.

monozygotic twins


Explanation:
uniovular twins
mono-ovular twins

Monozygotic twins can also grow in two different sacs, the're not necessarily monoamniotic.
