Abstract

We consider superspaces with fermionic coordinates belonging to representations of the Lorentz group other than spin 1/2. A general diagrammatic method is introduced which facilitates the identification of the various component fields comprising the superfields. Explicit examples of superfields with fermionic coordinates belonging to (1, 1/2)+(1/2, 1) and (3/2, 0)+(0, 3/2) representations of the Lorentz group are worked out in detail.
