one who feels (or senses) that which can be felt (or sensed), in phrase “mutaṃ na maññati motabbaṃ (so read) na maññati motāraṃ” he does not identify what is sensed with that which is not sensed nor with what is to be sensed (motabba) nor with him who senses AN.ii.25; where motar & motabba correspond to sotar & sotabba & daṭṭhar & daṭṭhabba. The word does not occur in the similar passage MN.i.3.
n. ag. fr. munāti, more likely direct der. fr. muta, pp. of man, q.v.
