Hello kapok!

I didn't turn up any results on "barbaholote", but did turn up one on
the corrected spelling of "barbajolote".  The scientific name is
"Pithecellobium arboreum":

"For example, during the second half of June 1995 a flock of at least
20 macaws spent the daylight hours in the trees on the edge of the Las
Cuevas clearing, almost always in one or more of three specific trees:
the Barbajolote (Pithecellobium arboreum) and the Fig (Ficus sp.) to
the west of the main building, and the Jobillo (Astronium graveolens)
in the north-west corner of the clearing."

Wildlife Impact Assessment of MRUSF - page 37

It is also known as the "Wild Tambran":

"Trade or Common Name:  Wild tambran
Local Name:  Ardilla, lorito
Botanical Name:  Pithecellobium arboreum
Family: Mimosaceae"

Wild Tambran

"Common Names
wild tambran, bahama sabicu"

Pithecellobium arboreum

I hope this answers your question!
