Abstract: The category TOP of topological spaces is known to be Convsimple in the sense that there exists a single object $ E$ in Top such that Top is the epireflective hull of $ \left\{ E \right\}$ in the category Conv of convergence spaces. Prtop, the category of pretopological spaces is also Conv-simple. We show that on the contrary the category Pstop of pseudo topological spaces and Conv itself are not Conv-simple. More specifically every epireflective subcategory of Conv which contains all Hausdorff $ c$-embedded locally compact spaces is not Conv-simple.
