I was so sure this would be easy to ID thought it was a type of waxcap but I cannot find a match,iSpot has cropped image 3 so will have to full image.Boggy poor acid soil grazed by cattle ,sheep, very greasy cap and very delicate Help.

Identifications

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Any reason for not ID of Yellow Fieldcap?

It may be the printing in my books but this seems to fit your photo.

I had the same thought but did not at the time have the courage to put it on.

Taxonomic opinion

Probably the best reason not to take it to species is that Bolbitius titubans and B. vitellinus have been lumped together by the current powers that be into a single species. Those of us who know the species as recognisable and distinct would still call this B. vitellinus.
