It does have an O ring buts its irregularly shaped. it is usually held on by 3 bolts(mine was). and the top most bolt was very close to my oil pressure sensor....(had to take it out to avoid breaking it) i needed a very short ratchet wrench and get it out. Make sure you get the ring from a Honda Dealership if you can.(i have bad luck with aftermarket parts on my Hondas).The reason why mine was spraying is because the baseplate was actually cracked. so i also had to buy a new one ( yes they have them too) O-ring 12.00 bucks baseplate was 39.00 bucks for me, might be a bit more for yours since your Honda is a little newer (mine was an 89 accord) oil filter baseplate or mountplate are some terms (so you were right on) hope this helps.

1993 Honda accord. The oil is gushing out where the oil filter housing meets the engine block.

sachemjoeqo, There is a rubber gasket between the housing and the block which hardens and cracks over time that needs to be replaced. The only problem here is that it is not the easiest thing to get at. If you are doing this yourself, put the front wheels up on ramps and be sure to block the rear wheels. Remove the oil filter and then the housing, be sure to clean the block and the housing before reassembly. Good luck with this.

Oil leak at the oil filter base of 96 Honda Accord V-6

Nope, just replace the oil filter. The filter may be loose or if the oil filter was placed without oil on the O-ring before installation will cause the O-rings to fail. If the car is due for an oil change, might as well service the engine and replace the oil and filter. Good luck and hope it's not the oil pressure sensor which will leak when it fails too and it's most of the time located by the oil filter area in most cars.

Oil leak 91 accord

Is this an Accord EX? The canister is an oil cooler; there is a seal between it and the block. The cooler is attached with a single large bolt in the center that also has the threads on which the filter is installed.

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter

If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter

If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.
