Small Fringe-winged Moth? - Osminia ruficornis

Small Fringe-winged Moth? - Osminia ruficornis
High Springs, Alachua County, Florida, USA
September 4, 2019
Size: about 1 cm
I thought it was a small wasp in the field. The flower head is about 1 cm across, so the bug is a little smaller. I decided it can't be a wasp based on the long antennae and the moth-like proboscis. And I've seen that "bottle-brush" butt on some hawk-moths. But I'm not expert. That's why I come to you.
