Semirings are modifications of unitary rings where the additive reduct does not form a group in general, but only a monoid. We characterize multiplicatively idempotent semirings and Boolean rings as semirings satisfying particular identities. Further, we work with varieties of enriched semirings. We show that the variety of enriched multiplicatively idempotent semirings differs from the join of the variety of enriched unitary Boolean rings and the variety of enriched bounded distributive lattices. We get a characterization of this join.
