Some results on fixed point of asymptotically regular multivalued mapping are obtained in metric spaces. The structure of common fixed points and coincidence points of a pair of compatible multivalued mappings is also discussed. Our work generalizes known results of Aubin and Siegel, Dube, Dube and Singh, Hardy and Rogers, Hu, Iseki, Jungck, Kaneko, Nadler, Ray and Shiau, Tan and Wong.
