Are these Macrolepiota konradii?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I've trawled through Phillips' "Mushrooms" and "Collins Complete Guide" and I am left wondering whether I am on the right track? Photo ID suggests to me Macrolepiota konradii, but this is just a pot shot. Advice please. All found in light mixed woodland in the grounds of Baddesley Clinton Estate, Warwickshire.

I would say these are a very dry group of an Armillaria sp, one of the Honey Fungus.
