brownish algae?

Hi guys,

some of my Live Rocks are rapidly developing large brownish areas. You can see them in the picture but my camera was too accommodating and gave the thing a nice reddish color. I assure it's much less appealing and browner in reality.

Is this just some good kind of coralline algae or should I get worried? Also is it OK that it spreads so fast (no trace of this just a week ago or so)?
