Darkened cross-veins and noticeably hairy face. I have sent it to Dr. Kelsey Byers and Dr. Martin Hauser for discussion.

 
Thanks Bill
Perhaps it's O. pictipennis? Princeton field guide to Flower Flies of Northeastern North America indicates it has "face densely pilose" and "wings darkened around cross veins". The other Orthonevra in that guide don't look like contenders.

 
Safe in pictipennis group.
Safe in pictipennis group. Note also the white mark on frons reaches half way to antennae.
