According to


Haylockia americana is a synonym for Zepheranthes americana.  Try searching 
for Z. americana instead.

In fact the Kew list shows that all Haylockia taxons are synonyms for other 
genera. We still don't know what Alan Meerow's grad student is going to do 
to the rain lily genera in his PhD thesis.  I think things are going to 
look rather different from what we have been used to in classifying rain 
lilies, when they get finished with it.
