I have thousands of lidar derivatives that I foolishly put into a raster mosaic.  They are dem, dtm, and dtsm files that I would like to separate into three mosaics based on raster type (not extension).  If anyone knows of a way to export and filter by file name it would be useful.  Working in ArcGIS Pro 2.8.  If they were in a file folder I would batch rename them in a more intelligent way such as rastertype_rasterID so I could sort them and import them into a new dataset.  If not I will have to do this manually.  Any insight is appreciated!

You can use Model Builder: Iterate Raster with following wildcards separately.

1. *_dsm

2. *_dtm

3. *_ndsm

You can link the output of the iterator to Copy Raster Geoprocessing tool.

You should just be able to specify a filter based on the filename whilst still specifying the GDB workspace as input. look at the 'filter' property Add Rasters To Mosaic Dataset (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

and use the same filter expressions given by @JayantaPoddar
