We improve some results of Pavlov and Filatova, concerning a problem of Malykhin, by showing that every regular space X that satisfies Δ(X) > e(X) is ω-resolvable. Here Δ(X), the dispersion character of X, is the smallest size of a non-empty open set in X, and e(X), the extent of X, is the supremum of the sizes of all closed-and-discrete subsets of X. In particular, regular Lindelöf spaces of uncountable dispersion character are ω-resolvable.
We also prove that any regular Lindelöf space X with |X| = Δ(X) = ω₁ is even ω₁-resolvable. The question whether regular Lindelöf spaces of uncountable dispersion character are maximally resolvable remains wide open.
