There are two species of clams called littlenecks:

  • On the East Coast, Little Neck after Little Neck Bay on Long Island, a quahog less than 2 inches in diameter.
  • On the West Coast, Pacific littlenecks.

Both of these hard-shell clams measure less than 2 inches across. They’re usually eaten on the half-shell.
