Draeculacephala savannahae
The head markings are not well developed in this specimen, but you can see the small black spot above the antenna fairly easily.

Andy, your previous ID
indicated that this species was known only from Georgia. Does Sean's image represent a new, broader species range?

Yes, the species was first discovered in coastal Georgia (hence its name, for Savannah). The first image in BugGuide was from north Georgia, which is more surprising than a range extension down to coast to Florida; but the latter is certainly a new state record.

Thanks again Andy!
