I see what you mean about the legs , Branded Imperial seems to be the only one with striped ones , although the orange coloration normally covers the whole wing .I am a bit stumped , but will keep looking.

Tricky this one , it is similar to - Great Imperial (Jacoona anasuja ) , maybe a sub-species .
