Bien que les Balanus vivant sur des Pénéides paraissent peu communs, 17 individus adultes de Sicyonia dorsalis Kingsley, représentant un échantillon recueilli en août aux Tortugas, portaient un total de 131 Balanides attachés, Balanus amphitrite niveus Darwin. Les Balanes s'échelonnaient depuis des petites cypris non attachées jusqu'aux plus grands spécimens fixés, de 6,0 à 7,0 mm de diamètre de base, ce qui indiquait que la fixation avait eu lieu près du lieu de capture et que les plus grands Balanides étaient établis depuis 15 à 20 jours. Les exuviations des adultes de S. dorsalis sont peut-être peu nombreuses, et les Balanus fixés peuvent ainsi arriver à maturité avant la prochaine mue. D'autres organismes recouvrants étaient associés aux Sicyonides: des Hydroïdes et de jeunes Spionides appartenant au genre Polydora.
