how does primary spermatocyte differ from spermatogonia?

Spermatogonia are undifferentiated male germ cells which are present in the basal compartment of seminiferous tubules. They are diploid cells which undergo mitosis to form diploid primary spermatocytes.
Primary spermatocytes are intermediate cells which are formed by mitosis from spermatogonia and are present in adluminal compartment (towards inner region) of seminiferous tubule. Primary spermatocytes undergo meiosis to form halpoid secondary spermatocytes.

the spermatogonia present on the inside wall of seminiferous tubules multiply by mitotic division and increase in numbers some of the spermatogonia called primary spermotocytes periodically undergo meiosis.
