We introduce Ciri´c-generalized quasicontractive fuzzy mappings and pro vide the necessary and sufficient conditions of having a unique endpoint for such mappings. Then we introduce β-ψ-quasicontractive fuzzy mappings, es tablishing an endpoint result for them. Finally, we provide some results as an application.
