Under suitable constraints on the traceless second fundamental form, we adapt the technique developed by Yang and Li (Math. Notes 100 (2016) 298–308) to prove that such a spacelike submanifold must be totally umbilical. For this, we apply a maximum principle for complete noncompact Riemannian manifolds having polynomial volume growth, recently established by Alías, Caminha and Nascimento (Ann. Mat. Pura Appl. 200 (2021) 1637–1650).</p>}, number={3}, journal={MATHEMATICA SCANDINAVICA}, author={Barboza, Weiller F.
