    These shrimp burrows (they're not necessarily from shrips, but many burrows look the same and are named after modern ones that are made by shrips)
    are usually called Thallasinoides, however, due to the modifications of fecal pellets on the outside of ones like these, they can have different names. (I can't remember the name of this one atm, I'll post it next time I go through my trace fossil notes.
