Coral(?).

Not a trilobite and the lines are to parallel for a clam or brachiopod.

Maybe a gastropod(?).

Plications of a brachiopod would be my first guess.

Wouldn't the plications have to be divergent and not parallel for a brachiopod?

True, unless it was fairly large and we are only seeing a small piece of it whereby the diverging lines would appear more parallel.
