Default Oil leakage - need help identifying part

Got under my WRX today and noticed an accumulation of oil on the engine on the front drivers side where a part in a black casing connects to the engine block. I took a picture of it and posted it on clubwrx (see link below). Anybody know what's the part?

I would imagine it's the cam seal for that cam.

Will inspecting behind the black casing narrow it down? What should I look for?

You should be able to tell exactly where it's coming from if you remove the timing belt cover (black casing). When you take off the timing belt cover shine a light behind the cam gear to see if you can see the origination of the oil. It could be leaking from the intake cam (top cam) and dripping down, you'll just have to pull the cover off and see.
