Photo of the Week: Hybrid Zoster Butterfly

This unique fish has the defining markings and coloration of two separate species: Hemitaurichthys zoster and Hemitaurichthys polylepis. They both come from the same genus, have similar spawning times and habits. Their ranges overlap, yet it is infrequent to find hybrids of them, making this fish all the more special.
