These mushrooms get their name from the texture which is similar to that of the children's sweets (candy).

They look like gill fungi but they have no gills and are Ascomycetes, the upper surface bearing spores.

The cap colour can vary from pale, lemon yellow, through orange to brown or blackish.

These were found in early November.
