Abstract: Necessary and sufficient conditions are given in order that certain types of partially ordered continua admit a continuous selection on the hyperspace of nonempty compact connected subsets. We establish that the class of arcwise connected compacta which admit continuous selections on their space of subcontinua is a proper subclass of the dendroids. This class is also shown to be larger than the class of metrizable generalized trees.
