Abstract: We consider conformal immersions of a manifold $ {M^n},\;n \geqslant 6$, into conformally flat manifolds. If the principal curvatures of $ f:{M^n} \to N_{cf}^{n + 1}$ have multiplicities at most $ n - 4$, we show that any $ g:{M^n} \to \tilde N_{cf}^{n + 2}$ can locally be written as $ g = \rho \circ f$, where $ \rho :N_{cf}^{n + 1} \to \tilde N_{cf}^{n + 2}$ is a conformal immersion.
