Abstract: It is shown that the class of full reflective subcategories of $ \mathcal{Fq}$ (and of other concrete categories) is not closed under intersections. This answers a question raised by Herrlich in 1967. A natural example of nonreflective intersection is presented in the category of bitopological spaces.
