A new and general existence and uniqueness theorem of almost automorphic solutions is obtained for the semilinear fractional differential equation Dtαu(t)=Au(t)+Dtα1f(t,u(t))(1<α<2), in complex Banach spaces, with Stepanov-like almost automorphic coefficients. Moreover, an application to a fractional relaxation-oscillation equation is given.
