Oil leak: Valve cover, or this "Cover/Lid"

Hey guys, just wanted to check in and see what people think, or if anyone has experienced this particular leak. It is causing the burning oil smell on my exhaust when I drive, though the smell goes away rather quickly most times.

Photo taken with a cheap amazon baroscope hooked up to an android phone, so its not as detailed as I like, but gives a decent indication of the issue. All oil is located right in this location.

Thanks, my brother has my car at his shop doing an oil change, and is going to verify 100% with a dye check. If it turns out to be the valve cover gasket for sure, they are going to order the parts and tear into it next week.
