In botany, the second description would be an emendation, if the new
combination cited the basionym, and of no nomenclatural meaning. If the
basionym were not cited, the new name would be illegitimate upon
publication ("illegitimate" is called something different under ICZN).
I'd be interested in an example of an objective synonym from any of you
who exclude new combinations as synonyms.
