Just the same a wind sound microphone protection, I'd bet on this is a sonic camouflage again bat echolocation (bat radar), don't you think so?

@aaanouel: I don't know. It is possible. But there are a lot of very fluffy moths out there and I doubt they could all be that way for that reason. Its a good theory though.
