Surely leucocoprinus birnbaumii?

It fades from pale yellow to dingy brown. I think both observations are the same thing. Should be common this time of year.

I thought it could be the same species as this…http://mushroomobserver.org/11448 because of the bright yellow color on the unfaded bottom of the stem.

Definitely a Leucocoprinus species, with its enlarged stipe base, the ring, the sulcate pileus and the general bell-shape of the pileus. The species is a bit harder to tell, as the original colours are not clear.

Lepiota or Amanita, with the ring and scaly cap. Stem base would provide useful clues in this case.
