The only dalbergia still on the list is Brazilian, dalbergia nigra.

Madrose is dalbergia baronii and it’s ok to trade in again.  Madrose is still pretty endangered, though.  It’s the same for African Blackwood, dalbergia melanoxylon, which is getting hard to find in wide pieces.  Both are great materials but at their current rate of consumption, they’ll be on CITES 1 with Brazilian in the not-too-distant future.
