Monotoma spp. synonymy

I've been looking over the Monotomidae species pages, and I noticed that there are two species pages for M. bicolor and M. parallela. According to Bousquet (1999) M. parallela is a junior synonym of M. bicolor. I propose the merging of these two pages to avoid confusion within this group.

thanks for the reminder
i've become aware of the synonymy long ago but got distracted, my bad.
btw, Tommy: do you mind reviewing what is on our Monotoma pages? -- i, for one, could definitely use an extra pair of eyes checking those IDs...
would be a much appreciated help

just noticed:
i added the synonymy on the page on Oct 5 last year...
