Apricot jelly fungus (Guepinia helvelloides)

The apricot jelly (Guepinia helvelloides) is a widespread fungus easily recognized by its unique shape, rubbery texture, and orange to salmon-pink coloration. The taxonomy has a bit of a convoluted history, resulting in many field guides still listing this species as Phlogiotis helvelloides or Tremella helvelloides.
