Thanks for the reply, it's in a pot. It's spreading all over the leaves. I will try to capture a new photo when I can.

The fuzzy webbing under leaves looks like spidermites.
Control them with Forbid:

The dark spots could be black spot leaf disease.

Copper chelate helps, good advice, just be prepared to lose a lot of leaves at first, but they grow back :)
