Recognized by sight: I doubt that the smear on the stipe represents the remains of a partial veil. Looks like granulatus.

According to Bessette et al, the veil usually attaches to the edge of the pileus in americanus, “not leaving an annulus on the stipe.” Moreover, it may be tough to tell from the picture but this had the cottony tufts on top characteristic of americanus, but not present on granulatus.
