 We characterise the maps into the space of 2-spheres in S n that are the conformal Gauss maps of conformal immersions of a surface into S n. In particular, we give an invariant formulation and efficient proof of a characterisation, due to Dorfmeister–Wang [4, 5], of the harmonic maps that are conformal Gauss maps of Willmore surfaces.
