Since the encyclopedia of mathematics does not have as a lemma Peano
spaces, I tried a search for "peano spaces", the term
that was more significant than the rather broad terms "locally" and
"connected/pathconnected", that bring only those standard exercises from
topology lecture notes like "topologist's comb" and "topologist's sine".

That cited abstract is indeed from paper and reminded me of those happy
times when Bourbaki topologists were paid by the NATO research founds
and created new categorial definitions by tons per year.

The article is

Positively expansive open maps of Peano spaces
K Hiraide - Topology and its Applications, 1990 - Elsevier

but I don't read such stuff, always remembering the warning from Reed/Simon:

Functional analysis (and operator algebra and group theory), the
paradigma of quantum mathematical physics, is no frutful playground for
