What is this part of the stair called?


I've searched for "stair rail base" and the stair section of the hardware store. No luck. Need to replaced a small section that split.

I don't think there is a name for it, unless used by carpenters in california or by an architect. The balusters are almost always on the stringers or on the treads.
It is just a finish grade lumber. Some split wood can be repaired. If you have the work room, a butterfly joint is one decorative repair. The balusters can be reinforced with longer nails that bite into the frame. Predrill first.
