Hello and good evening! :)

I have passed this fossil a few times and it resides in a large limestone slab. I believe  it could be a spine due to presence of Chondrichthyan teeth in the area and how it appears to come to a point. For reference the teeth I have found include teeth from Petalodontiformes, Eugenodontida, and other Chondrichthyans. I will note I have found some petrified wood in the area, but none in a limestone matrix so it could be a Calamite.

 

 

Location: Missouri

Time period: Pennsylvanian

Formation: Muncie creek shale member
