Sorry mustafarustom, i just could not find other sites for kotoensis, besides congestus is more closer to the area.

Thanks Cindy, it's the closest i.d so far.

It looks similar to Pachyrrhynchus congestus var. immarginatus http://salagubang.net/pages/species/spec... so it may be that genus. It's only a guess though.
