Do you have some photos of the stem and gills plus was the cap grainy,sticky,greasy or dry and same question about the stem as this would help with the identification.

Vermilion Waxcap

I don't usualy touch the fungi so that I can leave them for some one else to apprieciate so I can't be much more help.
The cap felt firm and shiney and the stem looked a little fiberous and was moreorange than the cap. I have put another picture up of a general view to give a better idea of the scale.
