Calocera viscosa or Calocera glossoides?

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.

Calocera viscosa or Calocera glossoides?

During some wet weather today I found these little chaps on some very old deadwood.
Based on what I can find in my books I'm wondering if this is Yellow Stagshorn Calocera viscosa or Calocera glossoides which seems more likely?
There was quite a large group spread over.
