Could someone help here, the 1st 2 photos are my Howera 'Lava Burst', the 3rd is cattleya leaf. We have had a fair bit of rain the last couple of months. The spotted leaf is not mushy?

some look like sucking bug bites that got infected with bacteria or fungal issue
the last pic looks like a fungal or bacterial issue maybe from temp change and wet spots one leaves.
are these outside and are they still damp at night fall or dusk?

Here are two helpful orchid society sites:

http://www.houstonorchidsociety.org/...ySueBottom.pdf
Hopefully these will help you!

If you'd hung around at EDOS then we might have actually been able to have a chat.... I've missed you heaps.

True, I wanted to catch up with you too, Michael, but unfortunately, when I had finished paying my dues, you were gone. I promise, I will be there at the next meeting. It is a shame, I missed the Autumn Show, I had about 7 orchids in flower. Very unusual for my orchids to bloom at the one time.

I didn't leave until 5:00, but then I was back again about 20 minutes later... I had to go and pick up my plants from home

I was hoping to see you at the show, but you mustn't have been able to get there. It was amazing. I'm hoping to post photos of all the place-getters in the next week or so.
