question for the brain trust; What insect made this nest?

As you can see the nest is hanging from the insulation foam in a crawlspace under a portion of my home. It is dome shaped and a light tan/cream color with darker striations through out the surface. I didn't inspect it for an entrance hole but for the most part the exterior seems solid with no openings except there may be one or more openings directly at the bottom.

I just discovered this nest today. I was doing some work in this crawl space late last fall and did not notice the nest at that time. I can't imagine not seeing the nest at that time, had it been there, so I think this was built sometime between last fall and now. My guess is just before freeze up.

I would kind of like to know just what I am dealing with before I make attempts to remove it, and seal up a couple small cracks in the block foundation to prevent a second occurrence.

Anyone recognize this nest? Would better pictures help? I actually noticed this as a last minute look around for stray tools I had been using. The access to this space is crawling thru a window opening in the basement wall. I was already back out and didn't feel like wiggling my way back in just to take a closer photo.

Ya, ya, ya, enough about that. Lets get back to focusing on nest identification. Cool
