As mentioned recently regarding hybrids, species belonging in the same genus or complex often hybridize in the wild. The same is applied for the three members of the subgenus Euxiphipops in the Pomacanthus genus. P. navarchus, P. xanthometopon and P. sextriatus; more commonly known as the majestic, blueface and six bar angelfish.
Hybrids between P. navarchus and P. xanthometopon have been documented in the wild, but finding pictures of them in the reef is exceedingly difficult. The above is a one of a kind aquarium specimen, most likely taken in Japan, but the photographer unfortunately, is not known. P. sextriatus x P. xanthometopon has also been documented before as can be seen on the left. This hybrid is not as spectacular as the former but still just as uncommon.
Pomacanthus angelfish hybrids are few and far between, but not entirely non existent. The Koran Angelfish (Pomacanthus semicirculatus) forms a few known hybrids with the emperor angelfish as well as the maculosus angelfish. Crosses involving the Ear-spot angelfish (Pomacanthus chrysurus) have also been documented before. These hybrids of the “big angelfishes” are no where near as diverse or common as those from the Centropyge genus, but when what few pictures of them show up, they certainly never fail to impress.
