Androgyny was the absence of genders. Androgynous species had uniform and identical sexual characteristics and functions for the creation of offspring. Although simpler lifeforms, like amoebae, simply divided their genetic material to procreate, more advanced lifeforms like Xindi-Insectoids were genderless and reproduced asexually (ENT: "Hatchery"). Some androgynous species like the Jem'Hadar did not reproduce naturally.
The J'naii reproduced by recombining the genetic material of two individuals, but without assigning either of them a gender role in the sexual process. They had evolved to become this way from a two-sex state (TNG: "The Outcast").
Morn was referred to as androgynous by Odo, who while making an announcement to passers-by at Quark's of Deep Space 9 says, "Ladies and gentlemen (notices Morn walking by) ...and all androgynous species..." (DS9: "If Wishes Were Horses").
