A Deltocephalus flavocostatus nymph perhaps. Helochara communis was the only other species that was abundant in the area, and that is obviously not the one. Some unidentified nymphs in the Deltocephalus genus do look close. Out of the hundreds of hoppers that swarmed that area of my lawn, only two adults made up that number.
