    They don't seem to have a specific name that I can find. The word for sink-hole in Spanish is "sumidero" but sink-holes intercept the water table and solution holes don't -according to the English Everglades wiki. There is a site in Spanish on the sumideros of Florida where they are referred to as being hondo or llano, pequeño or grande I presume that "pequeño sumidero llano" may be a possible translation of solution hole. The link is here http://www.fldisasterkit.com/spanish/hazards_analysis/spa_sinkholes.shtml
