New species?

A user(Biophillia_curiosus) has posted pictures of a strange lizard he found while in Indonesia. The lizard has yet to be identified but has sparked much interest due to it's incredible appearance, I saw some comments comparing its features to the flying Toruks in the Avatar movie. Here is what Biophilia_curiosus wrote "The crazy part is that those lines you see running through the wings like veins are actually its ribs! Evolution did a number on these guys. They can expand and contract their chests at will to glide great distances. We were only able to catch females as they were laying their eggs. All we could do is watch as the males soared overhead."

Anyone know what species this is?
