I would guess Ipe. Coincidentally we have Ipe floors in most of our house and Jatoba in one of my sons’ rooms. Jatoba is usually lighter and more red. Ipe is usually dark brown. If it’s extremely hard wood, it probably isn’t Jatoba. Ipe is one of the hardest. Ipe is also brittle. The first pic below is Ipe and second is Jatoba, both just after installation.
