James, Normally I would think this was Pleuroprucha insulsaria but in Florida these greenish ones can be Pleuroprucha asthenaria You might look at the information pages for both species and see if you can match the host plants to any plants you observed in the area that you photographed this moth.

Well, based on photos, I woul
Well, based on photos, I would lean toward P. insularia due to the seemingly larger proportion of fringed margins on the wings. In terms of hostplants, there were Rhus, Solidago, oaks, other various asters etc. not too far away which would line up with P. insularis. There were mangoes around which are listed for P. asthenaria.

P. insularia is by far the more common species, but I still cannot place this one to species. Sorry.
