Abstract: We prove the following theorem: Let ${\mathcal{L}}$ be a finite lattice, $x\!\in\!\bar {\mathcal{L}}$.
Assume $B$ is a set of elements of ${\mathcal{L}}$ which includes all complements of $x$ and is included in the set of all upper (lower) semicomplements of $x$. Then $\Delta (\overline {{\mathcal{L}}\setminus B})$ is nonevasive, in particular collapsible. This generalizes results of several previous papers, where, in different generalities, it has been proved that the mentioned complex is contractible.
