    I hope I dont get jumped on, like I did last time for trying to have a friendly tanning discussion, but here goes. Your problem is one of two things. Acid rot, or grease burn. If its acid rot, youll probablly find spots like that throught the skin. Ive seen some re-tans I have done where I could bring this under control, and salvage the skin. Other skins, were a loss, because too much time had lapsed, and the damage was done. Grease burn will usually be in isolated areas, where fat was left on the skin, and the skin was stored in high temps, for too long. Besides bugs, this is why most tanners store skins in a cool enviroment, during the hot months. Have a good one.
