Crescent
This is one of the Crescents (Phyciodes). It's closest to the Pearl Crescent on NPWRC's site but does not match exactly. Maybe someone else will comment.

 
I agree
with Pearl Crescent. There are 4 crescent species in Florida. The Cuban Crescent's FW has a few large seperate orange spots in a mostly black field. It's not that.
The Seminole Texas Crescent has rows of white spots, and doesn't look anything like yours.
The Phaon Crescent's orange outer FW band is preceded by pale median band that can be white to yellowish. That's not it, so the only other choice is Pearl Crescent, and it looks right.

 
...
Thanks. I have poste dthe image to that species.
