I'm not good at identification of corals.
Can someone tell me what makes it a jawbreaker.?
Does it have to be orange with red?

Jawbreaker has pretty much become a moniker for mushrooms coming out of Vietnam that have the yellow, orange, red, green, purple, so on and so forth but mostly the red on yellow. A lot of places have assigned names to their mushrooms with the jawbreaker title to it in order to ask a premium price. But there are some characteristics that separate a true jawbreaker from other very nice looking imitations. The jawbreakers have a bumpy texture by comparison to the iron man shrooms that are almost completely smooth, some of these I've seen are almost blindingly yellow.

Hmm, so I have what I would describe as maroon bumpy mushrooms which develop green or white stripes as they get bigger, they have a very noticeable mouth.
I'd post a picture but I don't know how! Lol!

Could be a type of candy stripe mushroom. As for loading pictures, if you're on a desktop computer click the "go advanced" button under the message box, click the little paper clip button, and it will bring up a menu where you can select the file from your computer to upload. If you're doing it from your phone then I have no idea lol

Eastlake basically said it all. Many people confuse iron man shrooms for jawbreakers.
