Sawadaea is a genus of fungi in the family Erysiphaceae (powdery mildews). The widespread genus contains nine species. One more species was added in 2011.
The genus was circumscribed by Kingo Miyabe in J. Fac. Agric. Hokkaido Imp. Univ. vol.38 (3) on pages 286, 371, 374 and 449 in 1937.
The genus name of Sawadaea is in honour of Kaneyoshi (Kenkichi) Sawada (1888–1950), who was a Japanese botanist and mycologist. He worked at the College of Agriculture in the National Taiwan University.
