Identify this wrasse (hybrid?)
Description : Can anyone please help identify this wrasse. It's caught in Sweden a few days ago, was about 8-9 cm long (about 3.5 inches), and has resemblances of both the Ballan wrasse (Labrus bergylta) and Cuckoo wrasse (Labrus mixtus), both of those were also caught during the same fishing trip, as well as Corkwing wrasse (Symphodus melops).

Would this be a hybrid between any of those species mentioned, or is it a totally different species? Maybe one that isn't normally a native of Swedish waters? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
