Abstract: In this paper we find necessary and sufficient conditions on a finite-dimensional Lie superalgebra under which any associative PI-envelope of $L$ is finite-dimensional. We also extend M. Scheunert's result which enables one to pass from color Lie superalgebras to the ordinary ones, to the case of gradings by an arbitrary abelian group.
