Evolution FUS3 MAP Kinase

There have been a number of studies concerning the MAP kinase involved
in the mating response/pathogenicity in filamentous fungi.  In a
non-pathogen, Neurospora crassa, there appears to be just one MAP kinase
similar to FUS3/KSS1 an it is required for female sexuality (but not
male) and it has effects on growth rate and colony morphology.  In
related plant pathogens there is again a female fertility defect and a
complete loss of pathogenicity.  Is it reasonable to conclude that one
MAP kinase does the job of both FUS3 and KSS1 in filamentous fungi?
