It appears to be one of the species of Prunus, although I can’t guarantee – there are many shrubs here with simple leaves like that. As far as an underside of Mayapple leaves goes, see my observation 83156

We see a very similar yellow spotting of May Apple leaves in June in the Northeast. On the underside in that instance one sees black spots quite possibly a teleomorph.

Fungal or not?

I’m not 100% sure it’s fungal – could be some insect damage. But I’m leaning toward fungal.
