    Due to the late warm fall it may be magnolia scale in it's crawler stage and originating on another plant in the area but moving to the Jap maple.

    Just a guess.

    I mixed 1tbs of dawn with water in a spray bottle and that seemed to kill the scale before I knocked them off with a stick. They fell off without any resistance. Thanks for the help folks. Any ideas behind the spots on the leaves?

    Perhaps phyllosticta leaf spot. Could also be abiotic. Hard to say but doesnt appear to be terribly bad.
