There are different kinds of couscous but I'm not aware of a labeleing standard. There is a fine grained kind and a thicker pellet kind usually labeled Israeli couscous in my area.

There are several sizes of cous-cous, just as there are with, say, grits. In North Africa, particularly, you can get fine, medium, and course grades.

So-called Israeli cous cous is in a class by itself, though, because of its extreme size.
