Resolution Note:

On particle system > expand Renderer module, and enable the Reflection Probe. This will make the opaque & transparent ones look different but this is by-design because in Deferred, reflection data for opaque objects are rendered in GBuffer. If user want to make them look the same, do this: Edit > Project Settings > Graphics > Built-in Shader Settings > set "Deferred Reflections"to "No Support" This will force reflection probe to run in Forward path.
