Abstract
Among the Mongolian peoples living in the territory of Mongolia, Russia and China, are widely used texts from the genre designation of "domog-lger" (Mong: tales-legends). Under this name hides so-called etiological or explanatory tales, popular around the world. They accumulate different views on the origin of nature and society. Most of the "tales-legends," published to date, is of a satirical character, while archival material and ethnographic publications give a different picture. Etiological stories existed as independent texts, and as elements of other genres of stories. Identification of such stories in the publication of the second half of XIX century on the ethnography of the Mongols, Buryat and Kalmyk allows us to represent the real popularity and diversity of etiological stories, thatwas common among these nations in this period.
