Hello Kattina,

CHR_HSCHR11_1_CTG8 is an alternate scaffold in the reference genome. For 
regions of high variation in the population the GRCh38 contains a number 
of alternate loci to represent this. Whereas the gene you've found on 
chromosome 11 is the version of that gene on the primary assembly.

I hope that answers your question, please let us know if you need any 
further assistance.
