Nice find Chris and great photos.
Did you check to see if the spore surface loosened if heated in LCB?

Thank Mal.
I did check with heated LCB and wasn't entirely convinced. More distortion than anything. I know one of your earlier samples was similar. All other data fit, so I'm happy with it.

Hi Chris
I am sure you are right but as you say I had previous find that I was sure was S superba which didn't have the spore reaction I was expecting/hoping for.

Common enough but always worth a close look:

One I come across frequently and with gill 'collar' fairly easy to confirm with hand lens :)

Hi,

I saw a pretty Waxcap on my lawn yesterday that I haven't seen before. It was orange with a dry tomentose cap and a dry fibrillose stipe; up 6cm across. It's the area where I get the Ballerina Waxcaps later in the year.

It turned out to be Hygrocybe intermedia, which is rather uncommon in Hampshire and the New Forest.
