Is there any way to suggest similar species?

I’ve been looking through the horsefly species and I’ve noticed there’s a couple that are quite similar and often misidentified as each other. Despite this, they are not in the “Similar Species” section. For example, in the " Tabanus petiolatus" page, its similar species are only the Striped Horse Fly and Tabanus sulcifrons.

The species that are more frequently confused with it are Tabanus trimaculatus and tabanus melanocerus.

Is there any way to recommend these species be added to “Similar Species”?
