Didn’t survive the hot stove…

I thought the huge eyes would be a dead, pardon the pun, giveaway, but I couldn’t locate anything that faintly resembled this bug.  Hoping you can help me identify this one…

Syrphid Fly

Dear R.G,
This is some species of Syrphid Fly in the family Syrphidae.  Syrphid Flies are commonly called Flower Flies or Hover Flies.  We haven’t the time to search the extensive archives on BugGuide to properly identify the species right now.
