Oil leak in Trunk


I did a search (as thorough as I could) and haven't found an issue similar to mine.

I was cleaning my trunk and found this oil stain on the trunk cover carpet (the rubber side was up and the carpet facing down). I flipped the carpet back upright for the picture.

I'm not sure where the oil came from. Maybe I just spilt some back there and didn't realize it OR it is leaking from under the subframe and into the trunk. The only oil I had stored in my trunk was ATF for PS and brake fluid, neither of which are black in color.

Any thoughts? There is no real smell to it (no crayon/musty smell, although my friends have said my car smells like crayons and I'm just used to it).
