    These are the beat pics I could get sent to me. Reportedly a species from Bali.

    You can almost see a star around the eye and the speckled look is a common coloration for A. aculeatus so, with the given location, I would be pretty comfortable with this guess. It is hard to guess size though and I did get one that was nocturnal and quite small with a similar appearance.
