Two kinds of constraints are proposed and studied in the N = 2-superspace formulation of the constant magnetic field system. The constraints differ by the number of fermionic variables left effectively independent in the superspace formulation. Both types are recognized as being associated with the so-called standard and spin orbit coupling supersymmetrization procedures respectively and deal with chiral-type constraints. Our simple change of variables connecting the two-dimensional harmonic oscillator and the constant magnetic field contexts does also work in these superspace formulations.
