I haven't run across the term "Hybrid Inheritance" in any official Java documentation, so could you perhaps tell us where this term comes from and why you are asking?
Java supports single inheritance in terms of implementation but multiple inheritance [sort of] in terms in interface. In other words, a new Java class can extend [inherit from] one--and only one--super class, but it can implement mulitple interfaces. This is the only place I can think of where the term "hybrid inheritance" might apply.
