Some further results about special Vietoris continuous selections and totally disconnected spaces are obtained, also several applications are demonstrated. In particular, it is demonstrated that a homogeneous separable metrizable space has a continuous selection for its Vietoris hyperspace if and only if it is discrete,or a discrete sum of copies of the Cantor set, or is the irrational numbers.
