Looks like Crypticerya genistae
A species that has been introduced into Florida within the past decade. There are not many photos on BugGuide (page here), but one of the two photos was also from an individual from Palm Beach. More information and photos can be found from the Florida Dept. of Agriculture, here (see figures 4-5). Nice pics!
