Jatoba or Merbau?

Off to collect another ebay find. This beautiful door is for our larder. Apparently it came from the student rooms at Corpus Christi College, Oxford University. Although it’s a different wood it should match our oak kitchen well.

Here’s the description from ebay:

Hardwood college door (1960s)

We accumulated a large quantity of these doors from a collection at a college in Oxford. Used with some minor damage. All door furniture is missing. This is a 2 sided door with a hollow centre. 1 side comprised approx. 15mm tongue and groove cladding and the other side plywood set in a solid timber mortice and tenon frame. The timber could be Jatoba or Merbau.
