Suppose is a complex Hilbert space and is a bounded operator. For each closed set let denote the corresponding spectral manifold. Let denote the set of all points with the property that for any open neighborhood of In this paper we show that if is dominating in some bounded open set, then has a nontrivial invariant subspace. As a corollary, every Hilbert space operator which is a quasiaffine transform of a subdecomposable operator with large spectrum has a nontrivial invariant subspace.
