I forgot, this is a picture of P. scutellaris taken in Costa Rica for you to compare and tell if it is the same species.

Great capture.
It is a bug (hemiptera order), it belongs to family Coreidae i would say it is genus Piezogaster... It is very similar to P. scutellaris but i don't know if they can be found in Indonesia.
