Abstract: We present a method for describing all indecomposable subcontinua of . This method enables us to construct in a new subcontinuum of .
We also show that the nontrivial layers of standard subcontinua can be described by our method. This allows us to construct a layer with a proper dense -subset and bring the number of (known) nonhomeomorphic subcontinua of to 14.
