Zephyranthes rosea was recently posted on Facebook.  I can ask the guy
if he minds if I use his photos if anyone is interested.  It definitely
does exist, it is smaller than Z. grandiflora and the leaves lie flat on
the ground.  It is supposed to be a species from Peru which of course
plant wise is a closed door.

In the plantlist.org it says it is an accepted name Lindl.

I have been looking for the one you mention Jane, but can't find it on the PBS
Wiki.  I do grow it but so far it has not yet flowered.  It has a
small bulb.  Small even for Rainlilies.
