Summary/Abstract: The article deals with nomenclature names of botany and zoology presented in a three page list included in Laurynas Ivinskis’ manuscript Filologinė medžiaga iš botanikos srities (Philological material from the field of botany) (fund Nr. FI–645). This manuscript is kept at the Manuscript Department of the Library of the Institute of Lithuanian Literature and Folklore. At the top of three pages of the manuscript there is an abbreviation Krasz which was used by Ivinskis to shorten the surname of his contemporary Polish cultural figure and a historian Józef Ignacy Kraszewski (1812–1887). The comparison between Ivinskis’ list and the list of animals, birds and plants (Przypiski. Nazwania zwiérząt, ptaków, drzew i kwiatów znanych Litwie (Remarks. Names of animals, birds, trees and flowers known in Lithuania)) (p. 274–283) presented in Kraszewski’s book Litwa. Starożytne dzieje, ustawy, język, wiara, obyczaje, pieśni, przysłowia, podania i t. d. (Lithuania. Ancient events, laws, language, beliefs, customs, songs, sayings, legends, etc.) (1847) shows that Ivinskis rewrote the names from Kraszewski.
