Drosera peltata bit off more than it could chew

I found this grisly scene out in the greenhouse when I got home today. It looks like my Drosera peltata got a little overzealous, trapping this fly (ID? I'm hopeless at identifying anything with legs) by the head. It's at the end of this tuberous sundew's growing season, so all of that energy derived from this meal will be going directly to the tuber that should be forming several centimeters below the soil.

Drosera - Reach out and touch someone grab someone by the head.
