Jelly Babies - Leotia lubrica Often called &quot;jelly babies&quot;, these small mushrooms have a very gelatinous/rubbery texture. The semi-translucent yellow caps were smooth and convoluted. Stems were yellow.<br />

Habitat: They were growing in a cluster, on the ground, in a mixed forest. There was another (pink) mushroom growing along with them, but I don&#039;t know what it was.
