Alternaria and others

I am currently researching into bacterial resistance into tenuazonic acid - a
mycotoxin produced by Alternaria alternata, several other species of Alternaria,
Pyrcularia oryzae (which causes rice blast) and Phoma sorghina which affects 
other grain crops. 

Apart from sythesizing the toxin I was wondering if anyone could tell my of any
other similarities between these fungi. I have a very basic understanding of
mycology and am particularly interested in any morphological similarities.
