Coup en passant or throw-in

I noticed an interesting end position in a casual game this week.

West
Q43
North
QJ
10
East
K2
2
South
AJ
3
D

South declares a heart contract and in on lead with three cards left. Notice what happens when a diamond is led from hand: if West ruffs high then he is thrown in, but otherwise South scores an extra trump with a coup en passant!

Does anyone know what is the name of this position (if it has one)?
