rawa gambut, paya gambut
Explanation:

Per definition, bog: wetland with acid peaty soil, typically dominated by peat moss.

So, we can simply say that it is a wetland (rawa) of peat (gambut). As supported by the following ref:

Ref: http://balittanah.litbang.deptan.go.id/dokumentasi/lainnya/s...
Bog; lahan rawa yang ditutupi gambut yang tidak memiliki aliran air masuk maupun keluar secara nyata, yang bisa mendukung proses acidophilic mosses khususnya spagnum.


paya gambut is just a synonym of rawa gambut.
