Medium_sygyzium_22big_red_22 "Big Red" lilly pilly's developing black/purple spots then whole leaf turns purple and dies off

I Have six Lilly Pillys that are approx 3 years old amongst pittosporums that form a screen, they suffered from psyllid attacks in the early stages but i treated them with confidor. Now they all seem to be developing black/purple spots on the leaves that eventually turn the whole leaf purple and then it dies off. I have attached a photo for reference, any help would be much appreciated.

Answer: Hi Tom,
It looks like you have a disease called Myrtle rust, it can be quite devastating, we have two products that you can use to treat it and they are Zaleton and Triforine. I have attached some information that could help.
