Let S be a dense sub-semigroup of R+, and let X be a separable, reflexive Banach space. This note contains a proof that every weakly continuous contractive semigroup of operators on X over S can be extended to a weakly continuous semigroup over R+. We obtain similar results for nonlinear, nonexpansive semigroups as well. As a corollary we characterize all densely parametrized semigroups which are extendable to semigroups over R +.
