Jack O'Lanterns?

These mushrooms were so big and prominent that I have been attempting to identify them. At first I thought they might be Jack O'Lanterns (Omphalotus olivascens), but a couple of these show quite a distinct ring around the stalk which is not characteristic of the species so now I'm stumped. Any mycophiles out there please feel free to offer suggestions.

I didn't know there were mushrooms called Jack O'Lanterns! I was expecting pumpkin pics!
