Eucharis Lily - blistering/bubbling of the foliage

Inland S.E QLD , Australia

Just thought I would post to see if anyone else has experienced this and what they found was the cause. Could not find any visible insect pests either on the foliage or roots/bulbs, but did treat thoroughly with pest oil which made no difference. Did remove infected foliage only for it to return . Have not as yet tried a systemic fungicide or insecticide but will. Am also wondering if it could be a virus or perhaps nutritional.
Thanks for any help.

I have seen damage like that on other species. If I remember correctly there is a small pest on the under side of the leaf. Perhaps a mite. These are very hard to kill with pesticide, but possible.
