Sulphur Tuft ?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Sulphur Tuft ?

Bit puzzled with this one. The nearest I can get was Sulphur Tuft (Mushrooms - Roger Philips)

Was on a wood stump which was hard to identify but might be beech.

The stickiness of the cap and the colour and time of year.
More info would have been nice, but people persist in ignoring requests for stem and gill shots. :roll:
This would have a dark, velvety stem and pale gills.
