I'm not sure which eryophyid mite you are looking for, but if its broad mite I have some experience. If broad mite was able to reach high enough populations they will cause scaring on the petiole leading to the leaf veins. Judging from the leaf stage its not a recent population. They tend to focus on the new growth. Not to mention they hate hot and dry weather.

Dominic- interesting. It is indeed the time of year for broad mites on primocane blacks. So what you are saying they may have been on the leaf and bailed in the meantime because of hot / dry weather?
