Denote by Q(root-m), with m a square-free positive integer, an imaginary quadratic number field, and by O-m its ring of integers. The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2(O-m). In the literature, so far there have been no examples of p-torsion in the integral homology of the full Bianchi groups, for p a prime greater than the order of elements of finite order in the Bianchi group, which is at most 6. However, extending the scope of the computations, we can observe examples of torsion in the integral homology of the quotient space, at prime numbers as high as for instance p = 80 737 at the discriminant -1747.
