Not sure about ID but looks like a good match. iNat suggested the genus and I looked through observations on iNat and bugguide

Seen along Chinese Bridge Trail after dark. I was mostly looking for spiders and other nocturnal critters, just passing the time and waiting for stuff to come to some blacklight sheets I set up. Here are my other observations from this short walk along the trail: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2021-07-28&d2=2021-07-29&nelat=25.62369666463608&nelng=-80.29807600354913&order=asc&order_by=observed_on&place_id=any&subview=map&swlat=25.618376013789284&swlng=-80.31849297857049&user_id=joemdo&verifiable=any

The sheets I set up were lit by a cheapy DJ blacklight powered by a USB battery pack (the kind used to charge phones). To learn more about the lights used in this setup, see here: https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/damontighe/11836-diy-moth-light
Video of these lights in action in Big Cypress last year: https://youtu.be/tavmTa7WoPk

One sheet was just before the Chinese Bridge trail goes under a canopy of mostly oaks, those observations are here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2021-07-28&d2=2021-07-29&nelat=25.624604445091475&nelng=-80.30664234303616&order=asc&order_by=observed_on&place_id=any&project_id=blacklighting-florida&subview=map&swlat=25.623274314702098&swlng=-80.3117465867915&user_id=joemdo&verifiable=any

Observations from the other sheet I set up near a saltmarsh habitat not too far away:
