Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum)? - Sympetrum vicinum - female

Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum)? - Sympetrum vicinum - Female
Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
September 19, 2020
Small Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum)? was low to the ground in a weedy field at top of ridge. (Originally thought it might be a clubtail because of the swelling in the last abdominal segments on this mature female.) The light colored legs are the main identifying feature.

Sympetrum vicinum?
How about Sympetrum vicinum - Autumn Meadowhawk? possibly a mature female with some of the red blush on her. Autumn Meadowhawk because of the yellow legs? Saffron markings at base of wings, lighter triangles on the sides, red stigma and light colored face confirm or confuse the ID?
