Given a metric continuum X, we consider the collection of all regular subcontinua of X and the collection of all meager subcontinua of X, these hyperspaces are denoted by D(X) and M(X), respectively. It is known that D(X) is compact if and only if D(X) is finite.In this way, we find some conditions related about the cardinality of D(X) and we reduce the fact to count the elements of D(X) to a Graph Theory problem, as an application of this, we prove in particular that | D ( X ) | ∉ { 2,3,4,5,8 , 9 } h t ) for any continuum X. Also, we prove that D(X) is never homeomorphic to ℕ . On the other hand, given a point p ∈ X , we consider the meager composant and the filament composant of p in X, denoted by MXp and FcsX(p), respectively, and we study some relations between MXp and FcsX(p) such as the equality of them as a subset of X. Also, we construct examples showing that the collection Fcs ( X ) = { FcsX ( p ) : p ∈ X } can be homeomorphic to: any finite discrete space, the harmonic sequence, the closure of the harmonic sequence and the Cantor set. Finally, we study the contractibility of M(X); we prove the arc of pseudo-arcs, which is a no contractible continuum, satisfies that its hyperspace of meager subcontinua is contractible, given a solution to an open problem. Also, we rise open problems.
