Abstract: The concept of refluent on arcs is introduced for multifunctions on semitrees. This notion is then used to obtain a fixed point structure which has as corollaries some generalizations of known fixed point theorems in arcwise connected spaces. For example, we generalize: each continuous point closed multifunction on an arboroid has a fixed point. The final section of the paper develops the relationships between a number of classes of multifunctions on nested spaces.
