Cannot import geopandas even though it is installed in environment

  anaconda, geopandas, python-3.x, qgis

In have this behavior that I cannot really understand. Some background might be in place. I earlier created an environment called geo in which I installed geopandas. I worked like a charm, but I later realized that I wanted to split POLYGON-type objects into smaller ones.

Reading a little, I found out that QGIS has something that might help. So, following this really helpful answer (, I created a conda-qgis environment to be able to

from qgis.core import *

and it worked like a charm. I also install geopandas in that environment, as can be seen below it is there:

This, is rather strange. And yes, I open my notebook in the right environement.

Does anyone spot my mistake?

Thankful for any help!
