Abstract: The set-valued set function T has been studied extensively as an aid to classifying metric and Hausdorff continua. It is a consequence of earlier work of the author with H. S. Davis that T, considered as a map from the hyperspace of closed subsets of a compact Hausdorff space to itself, is upper semicontinuous. We show that in a continuum for which T is actually continuous (in the exponential, or Vietoris finite, topology) semilocal connectedness implies local connectedness, and raise the question of whether any nonlocally connected continuum for which T is continuous must be indecomposable.
