We study the properties of fractional differentiation with respect to the reflection symmetry in a finite interval. The representation and integration formulas are derived for the symmetric and anti-symmetric fractional derivatives, both of the Riemann -Liouville and Caputo type. The action dependent on the left -sided Caputo derivatives of orders in range (1.2) is considered and we derive the Euler-Lagrange equations for the symmetric and anti-symmetric part of the trajectory. The procedure is illustrated with an example of the action dependent linearly on fractional velocities. For the obtained Euler-Lagrange system we discuss its localization resulting from the subsequent sym-metrization of the action.
