I am completing a long faunal paper, and have run into a problem.
Traditionally, we note nomenclatural changes in the abstract, and
flag them with terms like NEW SPECIES, NEW COMBINATION, NEW STATUS,
NEW RANK, etc.

What do you use for a species put into a genus that it has been in
previously, but not recently?  This particular situation is not a case of a
new generic synonym, just a single species being moved.
It is not a NEW COMBINATION, because the combination has been
used before.  Ideas?
