I tried to post a revised ID but that doesn't seem to have worked.

If this is on lime (either Tilia platyphyllos or, more likely, T. x europaea) then this will be Eriophyes tiliae.

If this is on lime ...

Thank you Peter, I guess the leaf is too decrepit (I did pick it up from the road verge!) to tell the species. If I can find the same thing on an attached leaf (I'm sure I did see that weeks ago and some may be left...) I'll try to collect some characteristics.

Mike.
