Abstract: The problem of existence of solutions to the initial value problem $ x' = f(t,x),x({t_0}) = {x_0} \in F$, where $ f \in C[[{t_0},{t_0} + a] \times F,E]$, F is a locally closed subset of a Banach space E is considered. Nonlinear comparison functions and dissipative type conditions in terms of Lyapunov-like functions are employed. A new comparison theorem is established which helps in surmounting the difficulties that arise in this general setup.
