Masdevallia "speckled treasure" black mottling on leaves

Hi Folks

I'm having a leaf problem with a Masd. "speckled treasure". I took the plant over from a friend a few months ago and it had a lot of black spots on the leaves. Over time this has evolved into what you see in the image below. Only on some leaves though. In addition to the obvious mottling, there are patches of tiny semi-translucent white spheres (eggs?) on the top surface that are only visible with a magnifier. Any ideas what's going on?

Could it be mites?
