I've found that there's a lot of attribution confusion between the two artists called "Ayaoka".
As far as I understand from the literature, Ayaoka Yūshin never used the gō "Kishō" 輝松, so if you see a Kishō seal, like on the BM example you cite, it must therefore be the work of Ikeda Ayaoka.
I get the sense, too, that Ayaoka Yūshin was mostly a Nihonga painter, and only occasionally a print designer, so I think the vast majority of "Ayaoka" prints out there are the work of Ikeda Ayaoka, even if rather lot of them are attributed to Ayaoka Yūshin.
Would certainly be curious for the perspective of others on this topic!
