A lot of inconsistency here. NIFSTD says it is preganglionic, and is part of the oculomotor nuclear complex, but I believe it to be accessory

WP notes confusion about use of this term for distinct pre and non pre ganglionic components https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edinger%E2%80%93Westphal_nucleus

DHBA has a completely distinct PrEW nucleus, suggesting its EW is non-pre
