Let formula10 be a symplectic vector space and let formula12 be a symplectic immersion. We show that formula14 is (locally) an extrinsic symplectic symmetric space (e.s.s.s.) in the sense of [Preprint 59/2009] if and only if the second fundamental form of formula16 is parallel.

Furthermore, we show that any symmetric space which admits an immersion as an e.s.s.s. also admits a full such immersion, i.e., such that formula18 is not contained in a proper affine subspace of V, and this immersion is unique up to affine equivalence.

Moreover, we show that any extrinsic symplectic immersion of M factors through to the full one by a symplectic reduction of the ambient space. In particular, this shows that the full immersion is characterized by having an ambient space V of minimal dimension.
