Hi Andrew,

in my opinion this seems to be a Myxomycete, somewhat like a Stemonitis
species or so.

best wishes from Germany,

a bright yellow "growth"
consisted of a layer of small spheres  - half the size of a pin head
glistened and was moist to touch
appeared to have flowed over the uneven surface of the stump.
changed colour to dark red - brown
 now tightly packed, very fine stalks ( 5mm long) supporting the small
sheres that were now also deep red - brown
contents were powdery.
