Abstract: Let $X$ be either the hyperbolic space $\mathbb{H} ^{n}$ or the unit sphere $S^{n}$, and let $\Xi $ be the set of all $k$-dimensional totally geodesic submanifolds of $ X, \, 1 \le k \le n-1$. For $x \in X$ and $\xi \in \Xi $, the totally geodesic Radon transform $f(x) \to \hat f(\xi )$ is studied. By averaging $\hat f(\xi )$ over all $\xi $ at a distance $\theta $ from $x$, and applying Riemann-Liouville fractional differentiation in $\theta $, S. Helgason has recovered $f(x)$. We show that in the hyperbolic case this method blows up if $f$ does not decrease sufficiently fast. The situation can be saved if one employs Marchaud's fractional derivatives instead of the Riemann-Liouville ones. New inversion formulas for $\hat f(\xi ), \, f \in L^{p}(X)$, are obtained.
