Is it Honeybee or Honey Bee? There can be found lot of usage both ways- almost equally. The question gets down to do you want to be common or sceintific:
In the preface of his 1956 classic "Anatomy of the Honey Bee1" the great American entomologist Robert E.
Snodgrass explains the book’s title:
First, it must be explained why the name of the bee appears in the title as two words, though “honeybee” is the customary form in the literature of apiculture. Regardless of dictionaries, we have in entomology a rule for insect common names that can be followed. It says: If the insect is what its name implies, write the two words separately; otherwise run them together. Thus we have such names as house fly, blow fly, and robber fly contrasted with dragonfly, caddicefly, and butterfly, because the latter are not flies, just as an aphislion is not a lion and a silverfish is not a fish. The honey bee is an insect and is pre-eminently a bee; “honeybee” is equivalent to “Johnsmith.”
