A Fungus Gnat fly on the drosera adelae

So... I was about to retire for the night and taking 1 last look over the plants when I saw something struggling on those dewy leaves of the adelae. I think it's a fungus gnat.

The Droseras with Pink flowers

I have a good opportunity to see 2 pink flower sundews blooming together. The Burmannii pink flower and Sessilifolia. While the 2 flowers of each plant blooms, i rub them together hoping for a cross, The flowers has set seeds and I have took that 1 out separating from the others. Will sow the seeds asap to see what comes out. But I guess nothing unique since they all look the same and has pink flowers. What am I expecting...?

Drosera Burmannii (Pink Flower) : Could have been a cross since the flower looks different.
