Abstract: We extend the notion of a locally phi-symmetric space to the class of contact metric manifolds using reflections with respect to characteristic curves. We show that the only locally phi-symmetric unit tangent sphere bundles are those of spaces of constant curvature. Some further geometric properties of these spaces relating to the Ricci curvature tensor and to Jacobi operators are studied.
