Regards.

Hi, Avinash ji,
Here are Tabish ji's views in this regard to Sesamum mulayanum being a synonym of  Sesamum indicum.
"Dear Mr. Garg,
 As per the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), Sesamum
mulayanum
is a synonym of  Sesamum indicum.
    http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?105072
They mention the reference for it:
Verma, D. M. et al. (vol. 1); V. Mudgal et al. (vol. 2).  1993–. Flora
Madhya Pradesh. (F Madhya Prad)
which I am not in a position to check myself.
    As the reference seem to be a recent one, I am inclined to
believe S. mulayanum and S. orientale are synonyms of S. indicum
    Best wishes
    - Tabish"

I seek further feedback in the matter, if any.
