Oil leak

98 S70 T5 Oil leak

First glance, I thought it was the RMS but the more I investigate it appears to be leaking from the oil pan. I say this because the oil is not coming from the weep hole at the bottom of the BH but from the seam at which the BH connects to the pan. In addition to that, the flex plate as seen in pic is not oil soaked as it would be if coming from RMS. To be more specific, rear-left-upper corner of the oil pan, right above trans drain bolt. See attached pics, notice oil droplet at oil pan/BH seam.
