Had on Arthur Clarke’s show, “Into the Unknown,” but wasn’t paying strict attention. The show was about weird animals like Tasmanian tigers and some kind of striped cheetah - and then they had a story of four survivors of a European expedition into the SA jungle (up a river, but not the Amazon). One of the four, a Swiss geologist, carried a photo of a large but very odd looking ape, propped up on a packing crate. A French scientist declared it was a genuine discovery, an English one declared it to be a fake.
The question is - what was the name given to this ape? It sounded like “Loyce’s.” I’ve tried the Dicovery site, and various searches on variants of “loyce” but no luck. Any help?
I’m not really a gorilla - I’m a librarian in a skin.
