Is there a generally recognised term to describe a problem where the diagram has more than one stipulation, in different genres (eg S#2 and R#2)?I thought I remembered it being referred to as the Argentine theme, but Milan and Kari's Encyclopaedia gives that name to a completely different idea.

Probably the answer is on page 445 of the Encyclopaedia - in the article 'TWINS', 12 type:
Argentinian twins, hybrid problems
The next article proves that I was wrong, sorry :-)

Hybrid problems is the usual terminology.

I'd forgotten that I have a copy of Michal Dragoun's dictionary of terminology "Slovník pojmů kompozičního Šachu". This gives two definitions of "Argentine theme". One is the same as the Encyclopaedia (with the same example problem); the other seems to be specifically a problem combining helpmate and helpstalemate stipulations. This must be where I've seen the term before.

Loyd used the term 'plural problems' (White, p. 443), which seems to go back to Chess Strategy. It fits the idea: two (or more) problems in the same diagram, varying only stipulation and side-to-move.
But it can hardly be claimed to be a generally recognizable term.
