ResumenThe quark model does not exclude states composed of more than three quarks, like pentaquark systems. Controversial evidence for such states has been published in the last years, in particular: for a strange pentaquark Θ(1540)(+); for a double-strange state, the Ξ(1862)(--), subsequently called Φ(1860)--; and for a charmed state, the Θ(c)(3100)(0). If confirmed, a full pentaquark family might exist; such pentaquark states could be produced in e(+)e(-) annihilations near the Z energy. In this Letter a search for pentaquarks is described using the DELPHI detector at LEP, characterized by powerful particle identification sub-systems crucial in the separation of the signal from the background for these states. At 95% CL, upper limits are set on the production rates <N> of such particles and their charge-conjugate state per Z decay: <N-Θ+> x Br(Θ(+) -> pK(S)(0)) < 5.1x10(-4), <N-Θ++> < 1.6x10(-3), <N-Φ(1860)--> x Br(Φ(1860)-- -> Ξ(-)π(-)) < 2.9x10(-4), <N-Θ(c)(3100)0> x Br(Θ(c)(3100)(0) -> D*(+)p over-bar) < 8.8x10(-4).
