Uraniidae, Lyssa menoetius. Indeed very similar to Lyssa zampa. However, that one would have a distinct whitish area besides the white stripe and different marking on the hindwing. Besides there is some pattern at the base of the forewing, whisch is missing in yours and Lyssa menoetius.

Here you find both in one link, left Menoetius, right side a wrongly labeled Menoetius, which is actually Lyssa zampa.
In my link above you might find some other ones:
