I haven't used the monster XP chart in years as I do the assigning of the XP in my games.
But as I recall, the base is the base and is not tripled – only the per hit point amount.
A typical 3hd monster has 20 as the base amount. Some monsters have a higher 3hd amount such as the fleshcrawler.
So, the XP assigned according the BTB chart would be as follows:
60 + 3x21 hps = 123.
I would give additional special category bonuses.
Special I for animate shell (10xp)
Special I for death throes (10xp)
Special II for 5 or more attacks (15xp)
Grand total for fleshcrawler = 168 divided by 4 PCs = 42 xps
Anyway, that's too low for me and I would probably give him 300 totals xps.
