A semiregular operator on a Hilbert $C^*$-module, or equivalently, on the $C^*$-algebra of `compact' operators on it, is a closable densely defined operator whose adjoint is also densely defined. It is shown that for operators on extensions of compacts by unital or abelian $C^*$-algebras, semiregularity leads to regularity. Two examples coming from quantum groups are discussed.
