If you search the web for the various names and sources of this tree, it
becomes clear that most modern botanical references to it use Haematoxylum
as the genus name rather than Haematoxylon.  The PROSEA handbook of tannin
producing plants in Asia has a very good article on the tree and references
the plant as "Haemotoxylum campechianum L".

Be warned, this book is quite expensive for the couple of articles relevant
to histotechnology
