Apium or Oenanthe?

I guess that next time I go over to Ness I'll have to go back that way (I usually turn of the Wirral Way earlier) and check it out, as the books tell me that the Apium can be identified by odour. It was growing in a fairly damp area, which would be right for the Apium - as I do most of my botanising in non-coastal areas I hadn't really considered that species. The other possibility would Oenanthe crocuta, which I know as a canal-bank specialist, but I thought that the leaflet shape was wrong.

Around here (N. Wales) this would turn out to be Oenanthe crocata but best to leave it at Oenanthe.
