Can this be handled as a simple taxon swap? As I read the paper by Knapp et al. (2019, p. 43 ff), it seems more complicated. They write: "The name S. americanum has been in common use in North America (e.g., Stebbins and Paddock 1949) for what is now known as S. emulans, but more recently (Schilling 1981) the two taxa have been distinguished and the name S. ptychanthum has been used for the taxon for which the oldest name is S. emulans. The type specimen of S. ptychanthum, however, falls within the variation of S. americanum, so is treated as a synonym here."
