Syncing with lightroom mobile. Of some 1500 synced images I have 11 that LR tells me (every time I shut down, and for a year now), they are not synced. But how can I find them? Everything seems to be working but I have many many synced slideshows in LR Mobile.

It depends - do you know if these images come from Lightroom on the desktop?
If so - can you see any images in the Navigator field "Sync errors"?

All of my photographs are in my LR library on one external HD, containing about 130,000 images, and have roughly 50 LR mobile slideshows/collections. None of the LR mobile collections have 11 photos (11 is how many image LRM images are not syncing), and I don't want to search all 50 collections online and am not even sure the 11 images would show up there. I searched for missing/sync errors and found none missing. Everything is up to date (latest LR CC, catalog optimized etc).  This is a minor problem, but after seeing this message for more than a year and every time I shut down LR I finally decided to enquire! Thank you! Jock

Jock, I have the same issue, albeit from my phone. There are 2 photos/videos that are consistently "pending" in the iOS app. It would be great if there were a way to see which iPhone photos have not been successfully sync'ed. I called support on this and they told me I would need to go through each photo and reference it on my desktop. This seems like a ridiculously tedious task when I have thousands of photos on my phone. There has to be a better way. Hoping they come out with a solution to this!

On the desktop app in 2015.6, released a couple of days ago, there's now a Sync Log in Preferences > Lightroom mobile.  That should help you identify any issues on the desktop side.
Michael, try the same on the desktop, and see if it identifies 2 problem files - I'd guess they're videos.

Well, at least in my case this new log tells me that there are no pending transfers. And it is obviously lying :(
