I recently rescaped my tank and this time I added some Christmas moss onto the driftwood. The moss was very healthy and green when I put it on to the DW. But withing three days I saw a grey to whitish fuzzy growth on all of them. This was a sudden outburst. But this growth showed up only on the moss. It resembles to the stuff you have shown in your pics. I too wasn't sure what it really was but I assumed it to be initial stages of BBA. So I immediately did the following and its all gone now :)
1. Frequent water changes - every 4 days for 4 weeks
2. Spot treated the moss with H202 - removed the DW out and then treated it. Initially daily for a week and then only during Water changes.
3. Bumped up the Co2 levels.
And finally everything is back to normal now.Moss is green and healthy. It was really surprising to see the pics you have posted and find that you have a similar issue.
This was my experience and the way I resolved the problem.
