Red spider mite. An awkard pest, it sucks the sap killing the cell it has attacked and leaving a brown scarring. You can just about see it at the base of Rod's picture.

Re: dioscorea elephantipes

I've had success with a few species, 3 I think, and just did my normal thing - so they were in pots that got light.
