Lichen or Fungi?

I was taken by this Horse Chestnut tree in York and the striking sulphur yellow markings. Is this a lichen, or a fungi that has not yet developed?

The numerous bonnet mushrooms at the base may be Lilac Bonnet Mycena pura?

Hi Philip,
I'd say this is a fungus but can't say which.
The fungus at the base looks like Coprinellus disseminatus Fairy Inkcap

Thanks for your comments Steve and identifying the Coprinellus.
