Resonance structure is where the placement of the double or triple bond alternates, while a resonance hybrid structure would take in the average of the resonance structures for that molecule to display the a more realistic electronic structure.

Resonance hybrids have a structure written as the average of two+ structural formulas separated by a double-headed arrow. It is also defined as "the net sum of valid resonance structures."
