I don't suppose "it looks like a Leccinum" is enough detail;)
What is left of the undamaged stem looks to have scabers there are no boletes with that combination of brown cap brown pores and blueing stem. You mention B queletii and erythropus both of these would bruise blue on the stem and the pores and also inside when you cut it in half. B queletii would also have a red area at the base of the cut stem
