I origanly fought this was G. viscaurantius but are not so sure now as
G. viscaurantius has decuernt gills were these do not. Unfortunitly there are no other Gliophorus species that have yellow gills. So can only assume it a species not yet described.

Stipe 15-35 x 1.5-3 mm, cylindrical, equal tapering at base; concolorous with pileus becoming ochre yellow near and at base; visid, fistulose, single. Context not looked at. Odour not distinctive, Taste not tried. Chemical reactions on pileus: KOH - bright orange/yellow
