|English translation:corn meal|
another alternative since: " 'Corn meal' podria ser harina de maiz o masa de maiz. Harina de maiz seria mas para hacer un pan de maiz (cornbread) y la masa de maiz seria para hacer tortillas," according to WordReference

Cornstarch in Spanish is Maizena, which is made out of fécula de maíz.
I´m posting something for better understanding below:
I hope it helps.-
A powdery flour made of finely ground cornmeal, NOT to be confused with cornstarch. The exception is in British recipes where the term "cornflour" is used synonymously with the U.S. word cornstarch. Corn flour comes in yellow and white and is used for breading and in combination with other flours in baked goods. Corn flour is milled from the whole kernel, while cornstarch is obtained from the endosperm portion of the kernel. Masa Harina is a special corn flour that is the basic ingredient for corn tortillas. White corn flour blends well with other food ingredients and can be blended with wheat flour to reduce gluten for cakes, cookies, pastries and crackers. White corn flour is used as a filler, binder and thickener in cookie, pastry and meat industries.
Season: available year-round
Substitutions: cornmeal pulverized in a food processor or rice flour
