Brown Fungus

There is a tree stump along Scenic Drive between the roundabout and Woodlands Park Road which must be a substrate of a fungus, sprouting its fruiting bodies from time to time. Right now it presents a particularly fine display.

Unfortunately, I have no idea of what kind of fungus it is – any suggestions welcome. Phil Bendle of the Facebook group Mushrooms of New Zealand (photography) suggested Gymnopilus junonius (Giant Flamecap).
