Moved from ID Request.

I rotated and cropped your photo so it's easier to compare with other specimens. In the future, you will likely get a quicker response if you post your moths vertically or lateral views facing right. BTW I agree is probably Dioryctria amatella but whatever, it's the latest Dioryctria for Florida.

Thank you.
Will do.

Probably Dioryctria amatella
(Southern Pine Coneworm Moth)
