Brya ebenus

Brya ebenus, also known as cocus wood, cocuswood, and coccuswood, is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae, that is native to the Caribbean islands of Cuba and Jamaica.[1] Horticulturally it is known as the Jamaica(n) Rain Tree.

Cocus wood is a very dense tropical hardwood with excellent musical tone quality, and was used for making flutes in England and France especially during the 19th century.[2] It is still occasionally used for reeded wooden musical instruments such as bagpipes, clarinets and oboes.
