Abstract. In this paper, we define $z$-ideals in bounded lattices. A separation theorem for the existence of prime $z$-ideals is proved in distributive lattices. As a consequence, we prove that every $z$-ideal is the intersection of some prime $z$-ideals. Lastly, we prove a characterization of dually semi-complemented lattices.
