Honey fungus or Sulphur tuft?

Observed: 4th September 2013 By: Steve_VSteve_V’s reputation in Fungi and LichensSteve_V’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens
Fungus 1
Fungus 2
Description:

I had these down as Honey Fungus until I looked at a few observations on here and wondered whether Sulphur Tuft is more likely. Emerging in small groups on long-dead broadleaf timber (probably Sweet Chestnut). The whole area is riddled with Honey Fungus, but these look a bit different - no ring on the stem for sure. Comments?
