Mike Ivie asked how to refer to a taxon placed back into a genus in
which it had been before.

I always refer to this as NEW COMBINATION, using the concept of "new"
meaning different, not "new" meaning brand new. (I can buy a new car,
even though it's several years old). Admittedly, this use is not
particularly enlightening, but it seems to be the way English is.
