Location is in Missouri

The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian 

Formation: ????

 

Hello! it is I once again I was curious on what this might be as it looks different from what I usually see in this type shale

 

I have found Pyrite Calamites in shale  but they usually don't have this texture so I was unsure of what exactly it may be.

Not Sure if these will help with the ID but here is the picture with the end pieces visible

I think it may be bryzoan.

Thank you for the id and now that I look at it, it does look like a bryozoan

Could be a bryozoan, or it could be some type of arthropod.

Not sure there is enough there to tell for sure which it may be.
