Abstract: Let X be a compact connected metric space and $ {2^X}(C(X))$ denote the hyperspace of closed subsets (subcontinua) of X. Let $ M \in C(X)$. If $ {2^X}$ is connected im kleinen at M, then $ C(X)$ is locally arcwise connected at M. A characterization of connectedness im kleinen in $ C(X)$ is given. Indecomposability of X is related to an absence of local connectedness in $ {2^X}$ and $ C(X)$. An example is given of a continuum X and a subcontinuum M such that $ C(X)$ is connected im kleinen at M but not locally connected at M.
