Collection location: Leicester Rd., Earl Shilton, Leicestershire, England [Click for map]
Found in a meadow near other waxcap species.
I have my doubts on the identification of this. It certainly displayed many characteristics of the Hygrophoraceae, but the gills do appear to be adnexed or free, while for it to be an H. pratensis/C. pratensis, the gills should be decurrent.
The cap was about 5-6 cm. Orange and slightly waxy (although it was a wet day)
Gills white and adnexed or free. Sparse and loosely spaced.
Thick white stem, with straight base.
Better Id would be appreciated.
