The "dwarf" honey gourami and honey gourami are the same species (as far as I know..)
The dwarf gourami is a separate species.

The flame gourami is red. Both the honey and dwarf gourami have this red variety. A dwarf flame gourami will generally have some blue on it's fins still. A honey flame gourami has no blue and is yellowish red. The dwarf species also has a different head shape than the honey species.
