Is anyone able to tell me what these spots of dark brown are?

I don’t water from top down, I water directly into the soil every other day and it gets a goodly amount of sunlight ☀

I’ve successfully grown normal basil previously to this and haven’t seen anything like it before - any help/tips would be very much appreciated!

A closeup of an infected leaf would be of help

I hope this helps!
From what I can see it appears that these black things are not a disease or fungus but are attached to the stem of the plant. Have you removed one to see what is inside of it? They appear to be eggs or possibly a cacoon. I just can't tell from these pictures. But whatever it is it doesn't belong so I would remove them.
