    I believe this could be powdery mildew (mold)! I have never seen dead plant "flesh" before. My VFT either has alive traps (green and healthy) or dead traps (brown/black). It would help to know what enviroment your keeping your VFT in. This might provide some answers. Look closer at the white stuff if it looks like strings or webbing it most likly is mildew.

    Is it outside? If so it could be bird droppings. Other then that I don't know what it is. If it is mold you can use neem oil or a powder based sulfer.
