G.R. MacLane posed the question of whether a locally univalent function in the MacLane class ${\mathcal A}$ can have an arc tract. We show that the behaviour of any such example must be extremely irregular. We also indicate one possible approach to constructing an example of such a function, which relates MacLane's question to the `type problem' for certain Riemann surfaces.
