I checked a number of agriculture databases and Crataegus is used most often
in the scientific literature although I did find a very small number of
articles that used Craetagus or Cratagus(probably mispellings).

My vote goes for no. 2, crataegus. That's what Michael Dirr thinks in 
his recent book "Hardy Trees and Shrubs". Misspellings do creep into the 
language from time to time, and occasionally become accepted and part of 
the permanent structure. The internet is not helping this situation 
much, although it is encouraging people to write more.
