Here is Tabish ji feedback on my remarks of "Sesamum mulayanum is different from Sesamum orientale (syn. S. indicum, S. trifoliatum, S. luteum) as per Shrikant ji's book" :
"Dear Mr. Garg,
 As per the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), Sesamum
mulayanum is a synonym of  Sesamum indicum.
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'

May I have more views in the matter for further enlightenment.
