Taxa are saprobic. Ascomata are apothecial and characterized by sessile or short-stipitate, cupulate to discoid receptacle. The ectal excipulum is composed of cells of textura angularis to globulosa and medullary excipulum is composed of cells of textura intricata. Paraphyses are filiform, septate and slightly swollen at the apex. Asci are 8-spored, cylindric-clavate, amyloid and sometimes arising from croziers. Ascospores are globose, ellipsoid to fusoid, 0–2-septate, and hyaline (Singhr & Tewari 1977, Johnston 2002, Kunca & Leontovyč 2013). Asexual morphs are pycnidia, conidiogenesis is phialidic and conidia are aseptate, hyaline, and staminate (Kunca & Leontovyč 2013).

Notes – The family Hemiphacidiaceae formed a monophyletic clade within “Sclerotiniales” clade.
