I am not sure that it ever went missing, it was just packed away along with the photos. But if I was talking about a green, corrugate-capped Conocybe, then yes, this is the one!

is this that weird green-capped Conocybe that went missing for a while?

Oh man, these were one of the highlights for me! Such a cool Conocybe! And so very different looking when it matures- it totally just looks like an average, non-descript Conocybe then.
