E. murrayi is really yellow and E. salmoneum is really orange. The contrast of the one fruiting in this obs. shows it well.

Are there two different species in the photo?

Kuo has photos here of murraii looking both orange tinted as well as yellow specimens: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/entoloma_murraii.html
also a mix here: https://www.google.com/...

These two are obviously quite similar with color being the main difference. If possible it is best to have only one species in a photo as multiple kinds makes the ID process complicated.
