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 http://www.probeinternational.org/pi/documents/belize/NHM9_05_01Wia15.pdf 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 http://tropicalhardwoods.com/htm/tropical_hardwoods/wild_tambran.htm "Common Names wild tambran, bahama sabicu" Pithecellobium arboreum http://www.worldagroforestrycentre.org/sea/AgroModels/Dbases/WD/asps/DisplayDetail.asp?SpecID=2700 I hope this answers your question! --Missy Search terms: [ barbajolote ], [ "Pithecellobium arboreum" ]
