I found this plant growing wild in a swampy woodland last March. Any idea what it could be?

Note how the leaves have a particular kind of vein arrangement, all curving in tune with the shape of the leaf, not the more complex branching arrangement from a main vein we see in the higher plants. This puts it in the same broad classification as corn and grasses and onions and orchids and other monocots. With the clumping at first it looks like a Hosta (also a monocot) but given the wild location it is more likely a lady's slipper orchid; they bloom in mid spring, say May.
