Smaller quantity in Food Data Base has more calories?

How can 1/4 cup have 180 calories and 1/3 cup have 140 calories? Are the cup and other measures reliable? For all foods? Which unit is reliable?

Note that is shows fewer "g" for 1/4 cup than for 1/3 cup (which seems right, but have not checked the actual numbers), and more kCal for 1/4 cup than for 1/3 cup (which is wrong).

Am I doing something wrong or are the numbers wrong?

    Clarifying: 45g has more calories than 35g: this seems right.
    But 1/4 cup is 45g while 1/3 cup is 35g: this seems wrong
