A Misplaced Conch is the last part of a World Questline called The Scattered Past, which takes place in the Golden Apple Archipelago. Due to being in an event-exclusive area, this World Quest can only be done from July 15, 2022, to August 24, 2022. Don't forget to complete it while the summer islands are still here, and get to know about The Fatui members scattered around the Archipelago.
