Abstract
Chromaticity effects introduced by the finite source size in microlensing e vents by presumed natural wormholes are studied. It is shown that these eff ects provide a specific signature that allow to discriminate between ordina ry and negative mass lenses through the spectral analysis of the microlensi ng events. Both galactic and extragalactic situations are discussed.
