Thanks for that. Also shows very good visual matches and found on Java.

EOL is a reliable source and their image matches this specimen precisely.

No idea how you arrived at pulchella, as even in your reference the image does not match. These are good images, but for them to be of any use to other members, the identification needs to be accurate.

This looks more like argiope modesta to me.
