I can see files on my phone iOS but not on my MacBook OSX

Not sure what is going on here.  I am using Dropbox on my iPhone (iOS 12.3.2) and my Macbook Pro (OSX 10.14.5).  I have Dropbox set to online sync only.  I have a shared folder with a vendor and they uploaded a folder of images which I can see on my phone, but not on my Macbook Pro.  Screen Shot 2019-07-06 at 8.42.50 AM.pngImage of the same folder on my iPhone and MacBook Pro

What does Dropbox say if you mouse over its icon on your display?
