Another simple example is the
*locally connected fan*
. It is defined as the union of countably many
straight line segments of length tending to 0, emanating
from a point and disjoint out of . Thus is
the dendrite with only one ramification point whose order is
.

The following mapping properties of are known.

- is universal in the class of all -ods for .
- Each open image of is homeomorphic to , [Charatonik et al. 1990, Proposition 9.4, p. 42].
- A confluent mapping defined on is open if and only if it is light, [Charatonik et al. 1990, Theorem 9.6, p. 42].
