Raspberry leaves

essex, United Kingdom Gb

The leaves on one of my raspberry plants have gone papery. Does anyone know why and will it affect the plant?



Not 100% on this but just wondereing if it is Rose sawfly. The larvae skeletonize leaves of roses and as Rubus is closely related....?

Hmm, the leaves are intact but feel papery and dry. Thanks for your reply Fractal.

Fractal, I think you may be right, some of the leaves are staring to get holes and some of the other canes seem to have it to. Do you know how to treat it? I try and garden organically.
