What is this?
Came across your website when trying to identify this “nest” found in a nature reserve in South Australia . Is it a wasp nest? Anything you can tell me would be appreciated.

Our first guess would be a Crayfish (or Crawfish or Clawfish or Crawdad) Burrow, but it is shaped differently than the ones we see stateside. I would also guess possibly a termite mound.

    This may or may not be helpful, but here in Costa Rica i see a lot of similar tubes that are constructed by a small wasp that seem to construct them as part of their brood chambers. My guess is that they construct them to keep out rain water that can accumulate briefly after a short but heavy rain.
