I made up the name "crocodile fly" because I think that the outline of the head looks like a croc and the veins on the wings have a reptilian-scale appearance. I don't even know if it is a fly, but I'm hoping someone out there will know what it is.

Looks like Amycle vernalis

Thanks, Aaron,
I think you have nailed it. Not a croc, not a fly, it's a planthopper.
