Several of my lemon verbena leaves have started showing damage like that in the photo. Today I noticed several fly-like insects on and around the plant like the one below. To me, it looks like it could be a leafminer, but the damage doesn't have that characteristic snaking pattern I've seen. Would love to know what it is and if it's the bad guy in this picture.
