possibly l. proxima? which i tend to think of as being a bit bigger and on acid soils on heathland, what sort of habitat was yours in?

Unimproved grassland

Heavy clay, no sand or heath for miles! The deciduous woodland around is more like copse but is the very scrappy remnant of an ancient woodland. The caps were smooth and almost waxy.
