    Hi,

    Went in loft today & found this growing/there.

    Is this some form of wasps nest or fungi bloom?

    All help appreciated!

    Looks like dry rot, which could be costly to erradicate. Can you upload more pictures?

    It's part of a wasp nest.

    The hexagonal cells in the middle make me think it some form of nest being built

    Corrected pic!
