Types of Mushrooms
Jelly mushrooms are a large class of mushrooms, held together by a common jellylike appearance.
The top picture shows the apricot jelly mushroom (Phlogiotis helvelloides), a very common ground growing mushroom in conifer forests.
They are listed as edible, but not considered very tasty.
A couple of jelly species resemble the jelly mushroom in the second picture. They literally look like a blob of orange jelly sitting on a tree stump.
These species are very common in the winter and fall, especially after rain.
The Halloween Mushrooms also describes a jelly species.
