Found inWork cat.: Selected comparative-historical Afrasian linguistic studies, 2003: p. 2 (article by Bender: Hamito-Semitic or Semito-Hamitic were early names for phylum; abandoned because of dubious mythological origins and inaccurate assertion of a split between Semitic and the rest; Afro-Asiatic, Afroasiatic or Afrasian are commonly used; proposed Erythraic or Lisramic did not catch on)
Ethnologue, 205 (Afro-Asiatic; 375 languages; divided into Berber, Chadic, Cushitic, Egyptian, Omotic, and Semitic branches; no Hamitic node)
