It seems as if there is part (all?) of the Elaphomyces host at the base of the first photo. If so, the host is extremely small (for Elaphomyces): a sporocarp only 3mm across supporting a Elaphocordyceps nearly 15mm high (or higher)?

is Elaphomyces granulatus and probably asperulus too

I am unfamiliar with Elaphocordyceps longisegmentis.

What is the host species for that species?

The sun was setting and I was pretty far into the park so I didn’t have a chance to dig them up.

E. capitata is possible in North Carolina, But other hosts also exist there. Might be other Elaphocordyceps?
