It's a Miranda bayonet. The Automex, Sensorex & Sensorex II models had a moving arm to couple the aperture to the body. So says Rick Oleson...

This is the Miranda bayonet. Though all Mirandas used the same bayonet, there were variations in the registering pins on the back of the lens: earlier versions (up to about 1973 or so) lacked the pins which were used for open-aperture metering in later cameras; lenses for the Automex, Sensorex and Sensorex II models have a moving arm on the side to couple the aperture ring to the camera body. Miranda camera bodies also have a 44mm screw-thread mount, inside the bayonet, for special accessories and T-mounts; but the prime lenses are most commonly found in bayonet mount.

Yep...The "arm" on the Exacta mount is the shutter release and provides a type of automatic aperture actuation on that camera.
