How about
something in genus Spilomyia in the hove fly (Syrphidae) family?

In Ohio, at least, I'd say S. longicornis. I don't tink you have any additional species down there.

 
well
looks the part to me, too bad i know nothing about the Syrphids... thanks Steve.

 
Syrphids
We probably have S. texana as well. I don't know the features for that species however.
