Abstract: We exhibit a countably infinite family of simple, separable, nuclear, and mutually non-isomorphic C$ ^*$-algebras which agree on $ \mathrm{K}$-theory and traces. The algebras do not absorb the Jiang-Su algebra $ \mathcal{Z}$ tensorially, answering a question of N. C. Phillips. They are also pairwise shape and Morita equivalent, confirming a conjecture from our earlier work. The distinguishing invariant is the radius of comparison, a non-stable invariant of the Cuntz semigroup.
