Abstract: Let $ H^{2}(S)$ be the Hardy space on the unit sphere $ S$ in $ {\text {\bf C}}^{n}$. We show that a set of inner functions $ \Lambda $ is sufficient for the purpose of determining which $ A\in {\mathcal {B}}(H^{2}(S))$ is a Toeplitz operator if and only if the multiplication operators $ \{M_{u} : u \in \Lambda \}$ on $ L^{2}(S,d\sigma )$ generate the von Neumann algebra $ \{M_{f} : f \in L^{\infty }(S,d\sigma )\}$.
