    I've had similar looking marks on some of my home-developed color film using Unicolor C-41 powder kit. For me it's when I squeegee off my negatives, stabilizer can remain in the sprocket holes and then form a row of spotting droplets just inside the row of the sprocket holes. I've started to take extra care when squeegeeing off my negatives, sometimes even running dampened gloved fingers down the spocket holes and then giving them a second pass of a water-dampened squeegee.

    Sort of a balancing act between getting the spots off and not rinsing away the stabilizer.
