It could be Alder and even if it is not I think Alder might be a good substitute for what you have. Alder is relatively inexpensive so you could get some and try you stain on it. The mantra with staining is….test….test…test first.
Alder is a fairly soft wood so it this wood is not “soft” it is hard to tell.
