An extensive carpet of ground ivy all showing leaf blotches
No interactions present.
This does not look like a miner to me, and does not look like any of those listed by http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/british-insect-....
Can you say anything about the structure of the blotch? Are they really cavities in the substance of the leaf? And was there any sign of a larva?

these look like Violet leaves not ground ivy.I suspect the blotches have a fungal source
checked again in March when in bloom.
They were indeed violets
The blotches had mostly by then become holes
No blotches on the the new leafs
