I haven't been able to find this fish in any of the books I have. The photo was taken in Tulamben, Bali. It looks very much like a pink anemonefish (amphiprion perideraion), one with white spots instead of a white bar. TIA.

interesting, not seen that before.  I do believe it is a Pink as you say, but with some sort of pigmentation issues :)

 

Did you get a shot of any of the other fish in the anemone?

I have three more shots from the same anemone, but I believe it's the same fish in all of the photos. I have one that shows the other side of the fish and the color pattern is not the same.

Strange indeed. Perhaps a hybrid, or a juvenile?

I think it's a mutant :D

It is definitely a skunk clowfish. The incomplete white side bar is likely a color variation (i.e. mutant)

Pinks often have aberrant gill bars.
