    That is on the head gasket so... First thing to do is check around the valve cover to see if the valve cover gasket is leaking. Then check the cam seals and the vtec solenoid to see if either one of those are the cause. Also, check the o-ring on the distributor. If it's none of those it appears that you have a failing headgasket.

    a little oil there is pretty common. wipe it off and see if it comes back. trace the oil up the head and see if its coming from the solenoid.
