Size: ~7mm length
At outdoor light. Wingpattern, but perhaps not head and thorax color, are consistent with what is found on #1175 Holcocera chalcofrontella. This species is listed in Heppner's Florida checklist but, to be on the safe side, I put my image on the genus page for expert consideration.

Holcocera sp.
The antennal notch is the type for male Holcocera moths. So many scavengers look alike, I'd leave it here. Maybe this is one of the ones that can be visually ID'd, but not by me.

 
What can I say -
Anyway, thank you, Robert. My comment on your post #1105747 actually was written in jest when I remembered that I had a similar one some time ago.
