Let $X$ be a Polish space and $T_t$ a jointly Borel measurable action of $\mathbb{R}^+ = [0, \infty)$ on $X$ by surjective maps preserving some Borel probability measure $\mu$ on $X$. We show that if each $T_t$ is countable-to-1 and if $T_t$ has the "discrete orbit branching property'' (described in the introduction), then $(X, T_t)$ is isomorphic to a "semiflow under a function''.
