This is a trace fossil of a shrimp burrow or at least that is what I think it is. I can't find much about the Lisbon Formation. "Lisbon Formation, composed mainly of fossil-bearing clays, fine sands, and limestones that formed as the gradually rising sea level caused the sea to flood over the nonmarine Tallahatta."
This is from this website:
