When I go to import folders, there are a few new subfolders that I ahve created that do not show up as an option for import. They are present when I exit Lightroom and view the Photos folder on my mac, but when I go back inot LR and try to import they do not show up. Any help for this, couldnt find an answer through searches, thanks!

Make sure 'Include Subfolders' is checked in the Import module upper left-hand corner as shown below.

 I'm afraid I have Lightroom in Spanish. I have Lightroom Classic 10.2, Mac OS 10 Versión: 10.16.0 [20E232]. I an trying to inport photos from the Images folder on my hard disk but several new folders are not appearing - there should be more folders where it says Mayo 2021. Only three appear when there should be five.

Looking at the list of visible folders, I would say that it's very clear that the two folder lists shown are completely different. Look at the folders before and after the Baby Jacob folder. You're pointing to a completely different location in LR. 

And we cannot tell exactly where, since you didn't show enough of the folder tree to get back to a common point. Start from the top and see if you aren't looking at different top level folders or maybe even different drives.

Just to show what I mean:

 

in the folder list on the left, the folders preceding the Baby Jacob folder are "2019..." or "2018..." while in LR on the right, the folders are 2020 and also some alphabetical names folders:

So in your first screen capture, you are not looking under Escritorio, but in your second screen capture, you are looking under Escritorio. The Lightroom Folder panel says there are subfolders underneath Escritorio (that's what the solid gray triangle next to Escritorio means).

I use Lightroom Classic 6.13 and recently upgraded my MacOS to 11.3. My Desktop folder contains many subfolders with images. When I "Import" with "Include Subfolders" ticked, then Lightroom does not show any subfolders, but rather "no photos found". This Lightroom catalog is even in a subfolder of Desktop that does contain photos. The error never occurred before my upgrade. Screenshot attached.
