Abstract: It is shown that an acyclic irreducible plane continuum which admits the structure of a topological semigroup is an arc if it has an identity, and is either an arc, is trivial, or is decomposible into an arc if it satisfies $ {M^2} = M$. This extends some results of Friedberg and Mahavier concerning semigroups on chainable continua.
