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.
