do you know I had never heard the word conk used in this context before, but yes you are right this is "the fructification of a fungus on a tree".I thought you were referring to conkers until I looked it up. And of course conk can refer to the nose, a visual synonym perhaps?

Gosh, I'm always learning from you and maybe you've seen something new! that feels great!

Tara Aunt Columbia had a huge conk, we were all afraid we'd grow up and inherit it!

PSS Yes, I had an Aunt Columbia!
