Observation of the decay $\Lambda_c^+\rightarrow \Sigma^- \pi^+\pi^+\pi^0$

We report the first observation of the decay $\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow \Sigma^- \pi^+\pi^+\pi^0$, based on data obtained in $e^+e^-$ annihilations with an integrated luminosity of 567~pb$^{-1}$ at $\sqrt{s}=4.6$~GeV. The data were collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage rings. The absolute branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow\Sigma^-\pi^+\pi^+\pi^0)$ is determined to be $(2.11\pm0.33({\rm stat.})\pm0.14({\rm syst.}))\%$. In addition, an improved measurement of $\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow\Sigma^-\pi^+\pi^+)$ is determined as $(1.81\pm0.17({\rm stat.})\pm0.09({\rm syst.}))\%$.
