I always assumed "Tyranid" was a broad, catch-all term for a family of space-faring bugs. In a real-world example, take the term "mosquito"; we hear it, and think "small, biting insect" - They're all the same. Whereas there are over 3500 distinct kinds of mosquito, each with their own coloring and DNA make-up. So "Tyranid" could conceivably cover hundreds, if not thousands, of color schemes and hivefleets...
