Oil leak near starter 5.7

I just changed my oil and noticed a leak near the back of the motor. It appears to be leaking right next to my starter bolt.

Now, my starter went bad about a month ago and my local mechanic put a new starter on. I know in most cases starters not anywhere near any oil parts of the motors but on some motors they bolt through parts that move oil. Does anyone know if thats the case with the Hemi? Is there some kind of seal where the starter bolts up that could cause a leak?

The other option is that its my rear main which would be pretty suprising considering it only has 70k miles. If it is the main, that would be considered part of the powertrain wouldnt it and would be covered by my extended powertrain warrenty... i hope.
