XCode Color Discrepancy

Xcode seems to be displaying two colors for the same RGB, Hex code, and opacity. Screenshot of color picker and button attached below: the left and right are slightly differing colors. Why is this discrepancy happening?

RGB: (211, 84, 63)

Hex: D3543F


Answer

I had a recent case like this on OSX. One of the colors was in the NSCalibratedRGB color space, and the other was in the device color space. Not sure how you'd get a calibrated color into the color picker's recently-used list, but that could be it. The RGB values in the color picker will be the same, but the cooor meter will show them as different.
