Not sure what these are. Maybe some sort of Bryozoa stem? I have hunted for years here in kansas and never come across this it's little round black balls in rows

Don't seem like bryozoa to me, but the pictures are too fuzzy to see what it is, I'm afraid.

Unfortunately I can't but figured a subscription would work too. They are little black balls all connected together in a fine and some are curving instead of being straight.

What part of kansas was this found in?  There is a huge difference in ages between western Kansas and eastern Kansas.

Girtyocoelia is also a possibility from the Pennsylvanian of Kansas.  Please post a photo with sharp focus and better lighting.

The pictures are dark and fuzzy, but  form strongly suggests Girtyocoelia sponges which are locally common in Pennsylvanian rocks in Kansas.

These look very similar to the Girtyocoelia found in the Hickory Creek Shale (Plattsburg Formation, Pennsylvanian) in Wilson County, KS.
