It would be something like this.

Low
Anubias barteri
Bolbitis heudelotii
Ceratophyllum demersum
Cladophora aegagropila
Cryptocoryne beckettii
Marsilea hirsuta
Microsorum pteropus
Monosolenium tenerum
Vesicularia Xmas
Vesicularia dubyana

Medium
Bacopa australis
Bacopa monnieri
Cryptocoryne parva
Diplidis diandra
Echinodorus angustifolius
Echinodorus parviflorus
Echinodorus tenellus
Lilaeopsis mauritiana
Littorella uniflora
Pogostemon helferi
Riccia fluitans
Utricularia graminifolia
Vallisneria nana

High
Echinodorus quadricostatus
Eleocharis acicularis
Eleocharis parvula
Glossostigma elatinoides
Hemianthus callitrichoides
Hemianthus micranthemoides
Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides
Hygrophila corymbosa
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis
Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae
Lobelia cardinalis
Ludwigia arcuata
Micranthemum umbrosum
Mayaca sellowiana
Ranunculus limosella
Rotala rotundifolia
Rotala wallichii

I think some of these are probably debatable but this should be a mostly accurate breakdown. Obviously something like a 150w MH on a nano is high light, but what would be considered high/med/low lighting is somewhat vague as far as nano's go. The rough wpg, or lpg estimates don't apply the same as with large tanks, something to research and keep in mind before trying high or very low light plants in a nano.

I would probably add these to the list as well.

Low:
Sagittaria subulata

Medium:
Crinum Calimistratum
Lemna minor
Marsilea quadrifolia
Nymphoides aquatica
Nymphaea stellata (If well controlled)
Nymphaea zenkeri (If well controlled)
