The massive six-dimensional (6D) superparticle with manifest (n, 0) supersymmetry is shown to have a supertwistor formulation in which its “hidden” (0, n) supersymmetry is also manifest. The mass-shell constraint is replaced by Spin(5) spin-shell constraints which imply that the quantum superparticle has zero superspin; for n = 1 it propagates the 6D Proca supermultiplet.
