Algae id??

Just wanted an id on this algae if possible(the green stuff on driftwood). I referenced the algae guide but couldn't differentiate this from cyno or bba. It's just cropped up in the last week and so far has only hit the driftwood. Tank has been re-set up now for a month and a half and planted for two weeks. I have no fish in the tank. Here's the details:

33 gal
Ph-6.7 when saturated with co2
This should give me a co2 level of a bit over 40ppm. I've been adjusting this for about a week but think I have it where I want it now.

Lighting is 2x24 t5ho giving me low to mid 30's par at the substrate. Today I just cut my photoperiod from 10 down to 9.

Any help would be appreciated as to an I'd, cause, and possible fix before it gets out of hand.
