Curious cone

Observed: 3rd June 2013 By: Nick Harkaway

Curiously metallic silver cone, one and a half to two inches in diameter, on a wooden beam which is getting very wet at the moment because the wall is leaking.

This is growing in my bedroom. Not sure how I feel about that.

Hi -

someone suggested this might be the place to identify this silver cone. Wasp? Fungus? It's growing on a beam in my bedroom, so I have a non-trivial interest. (As it happens, the beam is also part of a Listed Building I have a duty to protect, so I probably need to do something about it, but at present I'm not sure what.)

Anyone know?

Thanks in advance -
