Given both my interests in clownfish and in hybrids, I can't believe I did not see this publication until now.

Turns out this species of clownfish is a natural hybrid of Amphiprion chrysopterus and Amphiprion sandaracinos, pretty cool! And the two parent species do not even look that similar to each other. XD

Well it was already discovered to be the case since 2015 it seems. And there is a lot of info on which one is more likely to be the mother and whether there are backcrosses and so on.
