Overview
Extracted with permission from: Onuferko, T.M. 2017. Cleptoparasitic Bees of the Genus Epeolus Latreille (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Canada. Canadian Journal of Arthropod Identification No. 30: March 30, 2017. doi:10.3752/cjai.2017.30

Diagnosis. In integument colouration, pubescence, surface sculpture, and structure, this species most closely resembles E. canadensis, from which it can be separated on the basis of the shape of the discal patch of Ti. In E. compactus, the discal patch is quadrangular, not triangular or semicircular as in E. canadensis. These species are otherwise nearly identical, and presumably sister species. For comments with regard to other similar species in Canada, see diagnosis for E. canadensis.

Distribution in Canada: Western Canada (Map 6).
