Help! What’s wrong with our lime?

The lime tree is looking pretty good and producing a lot of fruit…

….but Keith noticed that some of the leaves are starting to curl.

They’re also getting kind of of blotchy.

Lastly, we found a couple of these insects.

After doing some research, I think this is leaf miner damage, but the bug doesn’t look like a leaf miner bug, does it? I’m really not sure what this is. Keith thought it was aphids at first, and then we thought spider mites, and then we came up with leaf miner. I texted Sue from the Seattle garden group and she and John think it’s a mealy bug…. I don’t think that’s right either.

Any ideas?
