RE: In situ vs. in-situ?

From:"Smith, Allen"

"In" and "situ" are two Latin words.  I see no more reason to join them with
a hyphen than for  joining the words "E pluribus unum" with a hyphen.
Even in the case of "carcinoma in situ," which is a single concept, the
current practice is write it without hyphens.

I know this is trivial, but what is the proper way to write these two
