Ok Juan. Can you tell me your reason for thinking so? Getting others taking a shot at this one too.

Two main reasons:  
 
1) The right hand side (which I think is Phyto) is lighter brown and seems to have damage starting on the edge and lower area on the leaf and moving inward which would indicate the spray product.  
 
2) The left hand side (which I think is Zytnia) is darker brown and randomly appears randomly on the leaf.

And the other thing is Juan, if you blow the picture up pretty good, you can see a few distinct dark colored dots that very likely are the fruiting bodies of Zythia. Nice work my man.  
Now I'll have to put a "spoiler alert" on the photo caption so people know the answer is here.
