I  suffered  from the same issue when Google crawled pages it was not  in-
tended  to  crawl. This indeed led to a drop in the rankings and thus  the
number of referrals. Try removing the unwanted indexed pages:


For  some  reason, no action has yet been taken, even 3 weeks after I  had
requested  that  the  pages get dropped from cache. Don't get  your  hopes
high, but be aware that the ranks appear to improve (rebound) gradually.

Hope it helps,
