We investigate the axial U(1)A symmetry breaking above the critical temperature in two-flavor lattice QCD. The ensembles are generated with dynamical Möbius domain-wall or reweighted overlap fermions. The U(1)A susceptibility is extracted from the low-modes spectrum of the overlap Dirac eigenvalues. We show the quark mass and temperature dependences of U(1)A susceptibility. Our results at T = 220MeV imply that the U(1)A symmetry is restored in the chiral limit. Its coincidence with vanishing topological susceptibility is observed.
