Highly likely misapplication. X. muta is a Caribbean species not previously reported from the Western Pacific nor in the Gulf of Mannar, Indian region. Until the record is confirmed through re-examination of voucher specimens this distribution is incertae sedis. It is more probable that this record belongs to the X. testudinaria species complex
