The wing venation shows the spurious vein as per http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/livestock/rat-tailed_maggot11.htm
The hairy face might help to narrow it down but I haven't been able to find a match. Can anyone help?

Moved from Syrphid Flies.

I'm guessing something in Pla
I'm guessing something in Platycheirus - there are some grayish/silvery species in that genus, and the tuberculate face certainly fits (as do the other characters I'm seeing).
