That’s right Clive,

I’m quite good at misinterpreting Horak’s key!
A viscid to glutinous fruit body doesn’t always mean it belongs in Gliophorus as some Hygrocybe species can appear viscid to glutinous when wet, for example H. julietae can be distinctly viscid in wet conditions, this is where I went wrong but after another look at the key and a quick look at the spores this is a good match for G. sulfureus, especially with the small size of these fruit bodies.

This looks to have a glutinus cap so puts it into the Gliophorus genus could be ether G.luteoglutinosus or G.sulfureus
