The larger fungus is a scarlet cup, Sarcoscypha, probably austriaca. What is growing on it? Is this an odd misdevelopment, or is it a parasite on the fungus.
Habitat is rich oak/hickory/buckeye forest, along a creek, abundant fallen trees in area, rich in fungi (we call it the Fungal Gardens). Sarcoscypha comes up in abundance every winter.

Thanks for the compliments on the picture. To be fair, I forgot to note in the observation that they are not mine, but those of a colleague, Nancy Kent.
