Lemon seedling leaf - can't identify disease

holatommJanuary 30, 2013

I've looked at numerous websites with images of most known diseases for lemon trees. However could not match one with what I'm experiencing. It's almost like the leaf's waxy coating has thinned or something - or like when a laminated piece of paper's laminate begins to peel off. It's just one leaf, all the other ones appear to be normal and healthy.

No doubt in my mind that's it! I had a feeling it was some creature rather than fungus/bacteria because of the tunnel like passages. Thanks a bunch!
