Abstract. We find a multiplication on the lattice of existence varieties of locally inverse semigroups which extends the classical multiplication of group varieties and the recently found multiplication of inverse semigroup varieties. As a special case we get an associative multiplication on the lattice of varieties of completely simple semigroups.
