Spots parent with a clue for resolving (7)


I believe the answer is:


'spots' is the definition.
(macula is a kind of spot)

'parent with a clue for resolving' is the wordplay.
'parent' becomes 'ma' (ma can mean mum or mother).
'with' is an insertion indicator.
'for resolving' indicates anagramming the letters.
'clue' anagrammed gives 'cule'.
'a' going within 'cule' is 'culae'.

I've seen this clue in The Times.
