Looking up the subgenus, I think I do see only 13 segments, and time of year seems to suggest that it wouldn't be subcunctans, whereas it's only a little early for oleracea. Also subcunctans seems to have wholly black legs, whereas oleracea, paludosa and this one have dark knees on reddish-brown legs.
Is it reasonable to go with oleracea, do you suppose?
