Mycoparasitic. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiomata pycnidial, uniloculate to multi-loculate, subglobose to irregular in shape, pale brown. Peridium composed of several layers of isodiametric to slightly elongate cells in the form of textura angularis. Conidiophores hyaline, reduced to phialidic conidiogenous cells. Conidia pigmented (pale brown), broadly ellipsoidal, aseptate, smooth, thin-walled, guttulate (adapted from Piątek et al. 2020).

 Type species: Sajamaea mycophila Flakus, Piątek & Rodr. Flakus
