Clearly you are right. In the meantime I could see that, for instance, www.stridvall.se has a big album for Melanelia, with some similar specimens.

Collema are small blackish things. (Usually not even immediately recognizable as lichens!) I’d say Melanelia instead. Not an easy genus, though, without a good key (even with a good key!)
