I have a Seiryu and a Coral Bark right next to it that don't seem to be suffering from the same symptoms. The Coral Bark has a little spider living in it. I left him alone since I figured he would keep other insects away. Any advice? Thanks.

From the pictures is difficult to clearly tell. But, the "under side" picture appears to have browning around the edges of the "holes". This leads me to believe that the damage is more a bacterial or fungal pathogen in stead of an insect problem. Try a systemic fungicide, when watering do not get water on the foliage, and see if that helps.
