Haylockia is a small bulbous genus in the Amaryllidaceae family from South America with a subterranean ovary. Plants look a little like stemless Zephyranthes with narrow strap-shaped leaves that appear with or after the white, yellow, orange, lilac or red flowers.

It has been proposed (2000) that Haylockia chihuanhuayu should be transferred to Clinanthus; All other species are considered synonyms of Zephyranthes. We followed the current treatment and placed them on the Zephyranthes page.
