botanical name unknown

Although I have seen a few woods on the Internet, and was given one as you'll see below, listed as "little bone" I have not been able to determine any species name for this wood AND the common name does not appear in my own extensive (although admittedly not exhaustive) database of wood names, so I have no confidence in the common name and no idea what the species name might be.

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions

two sections of a long veneer sheet, and a closeup. This sheet was contributed to the site by Daniel Deulen, whom I thank for this and other contributions.
