Any idea as to what these may be? I’ve been finding these in three different locations, mainly around Oak, Hickory, and Hemlock. I tried using chemical reagents, but didn’t know if my chemicals were to old or the specimens too dry. We found some on our last club foray ay Ricketts Glen State Park, and the consensus was that they were B. bicolor. Please advise.
