Chloro vs Chlorido

What is the difference between chloro and chlorido? When do you know which one to use when naming coordination compounds?

Hi chloro and chloride is essentially the same thing. Chlorido is the newer IUPAC name Convention and Chloro is the older one. Dr. Lavell said you can use either one, both are acceptable.
