Found on manured grasslands (farmer did some muck spreading last week).Delicate chrome yellow cap rather sticky fading more pallid and flat with age,gills at first pallid yellow turning rust or cinnamon,adnate,stem whitish apex granular downy at base ,ring absent very delicate and hollow ,cap size 1-4cm,stem 3-10cm. Found summer to autumn infrequent, I managed to get photo's of it at all stages of growth so hopefully this will help other's with identification if they find one as it does look rather different when mature.
