Leratiomyces percevalii, which we used to call Stropharia riparia.
It has a much less shaggy stipe than that of S. ambigua, and a dry cap. S. ambigua has a viscid, paler and solidly yellow (less orange), less pointed cap, with persistent, thick cottony-membranous veil remnants on the margin.

Nice documentation.
