bocote or louro preto.

If you can plane the surface, I can give you a better idea, as I've got a bunch of the latter, and only a little of the former.

Never saw louro preto with any regularity before the last couple of years, but it appears to be getting imported.

Grain looks more like louro preto, but louro preto generally also has very prominent flecking that you should be able to bring out of it planing a quartered face.
