no can see either file but when i do a Mac spotlight search it find both jpg images Can you please write complete English sentences? In Lightroom Classic, did you click on "All Photographs" and then do the search? If not, then please do.

Is this a Lightroom Classic question?

 

Shouldn't be a problem, Lightroom Classic is smart enough to know these are different photos, if they have different capture date, different original file name and different original file size.

When Sync doesn't work, it is almost always because the photo has already been imported into Lightroom Classic, and Lightroom Classic thinks it is in a different folder than you think it is in. Please search for this photo in Lightroom Classic, using the filter bar to search by file name.
