The official name is actually Crocodylus johnsoni. That's what was first proposed.
However, it was a mistake, in that it should have been C johnstoni (based on the spelling of its name-sake). The way the zoological naming works, though, is that it is difficult to have it officially changed to johnstoni. I'm sure this change will happen, though.
So, you will read both variations depending on the book you read, although C johnstoni is the more popular choice.
Hope this helps explain it a tad.
