A heteroclinic network for an equivariant ordinary differential equation is called switching if each sequence of heteroclinic trajectories in it is shadowed by a nearby trajectory. It is called forward switching if this holds for positive trajectories. We provide an elementary example of a switching robust homoclinic network and a related example of a forward switching asymptotically stable robust homoclinic network. The examples are for five-dimensional equivariant ordinary differential equations. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.
