Abstract: We construct an explicit example of a geometrically finite Kleinian group $ G$ with invariant component $ \Omega$ in the Riemann sphere $ {\bf\hat{C}}$ such that any quasiconformal map from $ \Omega$ to the boundary of the convex hull of $ {\bf\hat{C}} - \Omega$ in $ {\bf H^3}$ which extends to the identity map on their common boundary in $ {\bf\hat{C}}$, and which is equivariant under the group of Möbius transformations preserving $ \Omega$, must have maximal dilatation $ K > 2.002$.
