I am not quite sure on this one, as they were growing out of the side of a fallen tree, so not growing straight up.

Thanks

Thanks for the ID - is there anything it can be confused with? If so, how is it separated?

no

There is no confusion really as Velvet shank is an agaric with a yellow tan slimy cap and dark velvet stem gills adnexed growing from wood in the winter.
Cantharellus Chanterelle are egg yellow funnel shaped gills replaced by forked ridges grow on soil usually in broad leaved woods and emerge in late summer autumn.I hope this helps it is always useful to look at the time of year that the fungi has emerged as this can but not always rule some genus out of the id list.
