Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified. Also observations of M. elegans here (on MO). Try searching for Mutinus elegans here (at top of page) and see if you don’t agree. The cap starts out greenish and slimy, but often dries out or is washed away quickly. Relies on flies for spore dispersal. Probably with a distinctive odor.
