##### Abstract

We show that for any nonzero class $A$ in ${H}_{2}\left(X;{ℤ}_{2}\right)$ in a rational $4-$manifold $X\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}$, $A$ is represented by a nonorientable embedded Lagrangian surface $L$ (for some symplectic structure) if and only if $\mathsc{P}\left(A\right)\equiv \chi \left(L\right)\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}\left(mod\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}4\right)$, where $\mathsc{P}\left(A\right)$ denotes the mod $4$ valued Pontryagin square of $A$.
