I'd say C. munda
Even though C. sanguinea is the species you'd expect to find in San Patricio Co., this does not key to it according to Gordon & Vandenberg(1); it's a perfect match for C. munda, though. C. sanguinea never has orange markings on abdominal segments 6 and 7. I left a longer comment on Mike's Picasa album image.

I wonder if we have any evidence of C. munda from San Patricio Co. or nearby? Gordon's(2) range includes northeastern Texas, but it could have been expanding its range south since then, at least along the Gulf Coast.
