Trilobite identification

Hello everyone!

I have a large trilobite collection including phacops, drotops, asaphus, hollardops, reedops, diademaproetus, coltraenia, gerastos, harpes, crotalocephalus & moroccanites etc and they are distinguished to a degree. I purchased one from a recent holiday, it's not of a great quality but it was more of a memento than my love of the bug. This one wasn't labelled, I was inclined to say it's a reedops but wondered if I could get a little more insight! I can add more photos if necessary!

Also, I can't wash off the mark left by the price sticker on the front! Any ideas how to best remove it appreciated.

Thanks a lot :)

P.S, there was a sticker on the front I removed but it's left a rectangular mark and won't come off- any suggestions on how to remove it would be helpful!

It looks like a Reedops. For the sticker residue, you can try sanding it off, or (the slower method) of seeing if acetone may work.

Thank you I'll probably get some sandpaper on it. It was just an easy sticker to remove I didn't think it should leave such a mark. 

It has the general shape of a reedops but is missing a lot of detail so I didn't know if that could stop any confirmation being made, but thank you for backing up my assumption :)

I was about to suggest the exact methods, but in reverse order.

I would use a very coarse sandpaper such as 50 grit or even coarser to try and match the grinder marks already there.
