I have never heard of Emporomyia. Looking it up in the world checklist, it belongs to tribe Ernestiini which is usually characterized by conspicuously hairy eyes, crossvein m-cu meeting M close to the bend, a long pedicel (and often broad postpedicel), and a projecting chin. I think your fly belongs to the Exoristinae or possibly one of the tribes of small Tachininae.

Yes, clearly Exoristini or possibly Blondeliini. My gut feeling is Bessa.

By the way, you specimens are in poor condition. Are they from traps ? Otherwise, please take care get the head straight and spread the wings and legs while pinning.
