Consider the veil…

The collar-like veil exceeding the pileus margin is distinctive. If the flesh lacked bright yellow staining at the base of the stipe, and the spores tended to be about 6.0-6.5 um long on average, I would go with Murrill’s name. Otherwise, it would more likely belong to the tangled bunch of species collectively (and temporarily) called A. praeclaresquamosus (an invalid name); the pleated pileus is suggestive of this group.
