Yikes, I thought I was deleting them from disk ... Thank you!!
In that case, is there a way to "see" the images I removed from catalog (so
that I can them delete from disk?)

Just use the second shortcut I posted and they will be removed from the disk also.
As far as the delete the removed photos from the folder you have already done, you could always REIMPORT the removed photos (they will be the only ones that you can import if duplicates is off) from that folder and then reselect all the recently imported photos and do the super delete command.
There is no way except to do the workaround I gave in my previous answer by reimporting and redeleting using the delete from disk this time. This is assuming the folder and subfolders only have the 10,800 photos you are discussing. This will only reimport the 280 photos that are found in Finder but not in Lightroom if "Dont import suspected duplicates" is on. After the import, immediately select ALL the 280 recently imported photos and delete them.
To be clear Bob is correct to reimport them as he describes, then they will be in the "Previous Import" collection from which you can delete to the trash with the delete button.
I figured out a way that I think is easier.
I selected the collection in LR (the one that has the correct number of
pictures) and I moved the images to a new folder. Then I went to the old
folder (in the finder) and deleted those 300 pictures.
