Abstract: Let $ LFC$ be the class of all locally $ FC$-groups. We study the existentially closed groups in the class $ LF{C_p}$ of all $ LFC$-groups $ H$ whose torsion subgroup $ T(H)$ is a $ p$-group. Differently from the situation in $ LFC$, every existentially closed $ LF{C_p}$-group is already closed in $ LF{C_p}$, and there exist $ {2^{{\aleph _0}}}$ countable closed $ LF{C_P}$-groups $ G$. However, in the countable case, $ T(G)$ is up to isomorphism always a unique locally finite $ p$-group with similar properties as the unique countable existentially closed locally finite $ p$-group $ {E_p}$.
