Abstract
Starting from a manifestly supersymmetric superfield formalism, we construct the lagrangian of fourth-order supergravity in component field form. The super-Gauss-Bonnet theorem can be used to eliminate one of the three terms in the superfield lagrangian. We verify the super-Gauss- Bonnet theorem explicitly or the bosonic part of the theory.
